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


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.



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.
