I apologize if this question has been answered already but we are a small agency in Hawaii working with a very tourist-heavy project that incorporates both SLAM and marker AR. My question is this:
In order to keep the app size small, is it possible to store the marker overlay content on a separate server and when the user starts the app, depending on which hotel he/she checks into, it downloads the most updated content for that hotel at that time? That way, recognition takes place on the device and not through cloud (Waikiki's wifi isn't the best). We wouldn't mind cloud but the 1,000,000 call limit might be an issue as our project spans the entirety of Waikiki's hotels.
I would very much appreciate advice on the best way to implement this in the most efficient way. We'll only have about 20 image targets active per month but they will be updated monthly so dynamic content creation is a must.
Thank you for your reply! That helps to know very much. This works if I will have 20 targets. What happens, though, if in addition to replacing old files, I need to add new assets to the server so the total number of assets goes from 20 to, say, 25? Would adding new assets mean I have to rebuild the app since the new assets aren't built into the code?
