Augmented Reality (AR) is a technology that augments user reality with computer-generated data such as GPS, audio, video or 3D objects. In comparison with virtual reality (VR), where the user’s view is totally replaced with a computer-generated environment, Augmented Reality focus on enhancing user’s reality experience with superimposed information. The application of Augmented Reality not only focuses on military and advertisement applications but also on education and medicine. This thesis focuses on development of an Augmented Reality application on the Android platform to view computerized axial tomography (CAT) scan images and 3D atlas models superimposed over the physical world, displayed on the device screen in real time. The developed application is based on AndAR framework, a Java API that provides a foundation to develop Augmented Reality projects on the Android platform.
