Thanks Renate, I am enjoying the conversation and learning lots!

Great - will keep an eye out for that thread :-)
> I will spend a bit of time with your blog btw.

> My interests in learning AR stem from a drawing project I am beginning.

> Those areas or hotspots will provide fun facts to know and tell about

Sounds like a lovely project - please keep me informed of progress!

Layar is a good tool too. When you use Aurasma you create a 'trigger' image which is what activates the AR component - this image is then what I use in other forms - printed materials, in blog posts etc - hope that is a bit clearer.

Will do Renate :-)
