Area Glossary

Augmented Reality has been the subject of scientific and engineering research for decades but has only recently been brought to the attention of wider audiences. As the concept is broad, it is easily confused with other new and emerging technologies with which it shares attributes.

The AREA has compiled the following list of key AR terms and their definitions to help enterprises understand what distinguishes AR from other technologies and to provide a helpful reference when reading about AR-specific tools and concepts.

Field of View

Field of View is the term used to explain how large an AR image is when viewed which explains how “big” an augmented reality image is when viewed through a display device. A smaller field of view can limit the size and quality of an AR image. Generally speaking, a larger field of view offers more flexibility to locate the AR image and any accompanying information for optimum viewing for a particular application.
