(Abstract) Example embodiments of the present disclosure provide techniques for capturing and analyzing information gathered by a mobile device equipped with one or more sensors. Recognition and tracking software and localization techniques may be used to extrapolate pertinent information about the surrounding environment and transmit the information to a service that can analyze the transmitted information. In one embodiment, when a user views a particular object or landmark on a device with image capture capability, the device may be provided with information through a wireless connection via a database that may provide the user with rich metadata regarding the objects in view. Information may be presented through rendering means such as a web browser, rendered as a 2D overlay on top of the live image, and rendered in augmented reality.
