How does Placenote work?

Placenote does not need GPS, markers or beacons for position tracking. Instead, it lets users dynamically scan any space and turn it into a trackable map for positioning digital content. No infrastructure needed.

scan an area
Scan Indoor Spaces

Users scan their surroundings with their phone camera to capture a 3D map.

add AR notes
Save Virtual Content

Once mapped, any digital content placed in the area will be saved, to reload or share with others.

store maps in the cloud
Cloud Server for 3D Maps

Placenote makes it easy for developers to deploy AR apps on a cloud platform built specifically for 3D map management and sharing.

simulator for AR
Rapid Prototyping Tools

We know that building AR apps is hard work. Placenote includes several sample apps and a simulator to help reduce development time.
