MinervaAR is an application for android devices that makes it possible to use mobile augmented reality (MAR) for educative purposes. Location-based AR (digital overlay with digital information on a map) and vision-based AR (projection of digital information on the camera-stream) are enabled in this application for smartphones and tablets. Further, a web-based system is developed which enables users to create games for this app. The users can load these created games through the app. Content providers have a wide range of options for their self-made games, so they can try multiple possibilities to find out the best way to use MAR for learning scenarios.
