Is there a limit to the number of POI that Wikitude can display?

Is there a limit to the number of POI that Wikitude can display?

Just wanted to know what the highest expectation of the amount of POI's that the ARView could display at 1 time.

I have developed an app which tracks approx 200 items, upon getting a location update these items all then have to be "redrawn" to their correct positions.

I have noticed that the more POIs added the worse the perfomances gets, as expected.

Just wondered if there was a guided limit to the number of POI's to display at one time.

Also when displaying so many, is there an optimal way of handling how the items are repositioned/redrawn?

What I am currently doing is upon a locationUpdate I am then iterrating through all my markers 

for (var i = 0; i < World.markerList.length; i++) {

and then updating the distance of that object, as I display that within the UI.

marker.distanceToUser = marker.markerObject.locations.distanceToUser();

I also get the viewable distance and determine whether to have that marker enabled or not depending on whether it is now visible.

if (markerViewableDistance < maxRangeMeters) {
if(marker.markerObject != null) {
marker.markerObject.enabled = true;
else {
if(marker.markerObject != null) {
marker.markerObject.enabled = false;



Thanks in advance.


Generally aorund 50 POIs are a good rule of thumb, to have still a good user experience. If you have more then you can combine POIs that are near each other. Details can be found here.
