Augmented Reality Marauder’s Map of Georgia Tech

“The Marauder’s Map” is a magical map in J.
K. Rowling’s fantasy series, “Harry Potter and the Prisoner
of Azkaban”. When being used by wizards who “solemnly
swear that I am up to no good”, it shows all moving objects
within the boundary of the “Hogwarts School of Witchcraft
and Wizardry”. In this paper, we had adapted this iconic theme to Georgia Tech, complete with its custom map and Georgia Tech culture. We envision how a currently available API like Google Latitude, coupled with AR can be used to create a compelling Marauder’s Map experience.
