The technology of “augmented reality” has existed in an experimental stage since the early 1990s, but it is not until around year 2010 that commercial use in the form of both hardware and software became available, for example, when Pokémon GO and Google Glass were announced. The aim of this thesis is to develop a mobile application that utilizes the technique of augmented reality to gain an insight into the technique’s potential, as well as the various tools available in this type of development. The project resulted in an augmented reality application, written in the program language Kotlin for the mobile operating system Android. The main use of the application includes group activities such as tourism, as the main functionality is to visualize other users' location via the mobile camera using the tools ARCore and Azure’s database Cosmos DB. Even though the technology is relatively new, the work has progressed without major difficulties, and even with basic programming knowledge it is possible to do software development in this area.
