TourGuide is software for Android phones and tablets that allows users to use augmented reality to see the world. TourGuide uses realtime video to search for images that match those in its database. When these images are found, TourGuide overlays the image with a number of options – from URLs/Web to video viewing – that are used to access more information about the image by touching the screen.

The software is designed so that configuring it is easy. In addition to the viewer, there is also a TourGuide Editor that allows configuration on a tablet or phone.
