Abstract

This paper briefly surveys pose tracking methods used for augmented reality applications in cultural heritage. The paper primarily benefits scholars and practitioners in the areas of electronic heritage. Pose tracking techniques are categorized as either being dependent or independent of their surrounding; accordingly, various solution methods in the literature are presented along with their advantages and disadvantages. I conclude the paper with a discussion on the open problems in pose tracking in cultural heritage and recommend future directions of research in this field.

Background

Pose estimation in AR applications for CH can be broadly categorized as either being dependent or independent of its surrounding environment. In the former case, the pose of the agent is calculated according to an interaction between sensors (e.g., cameras) and artificial beacons (e.g., markers), each placed either in the environment or on the user. In the latter case, the agent is equipped with sensors that are used for positioning, without any required infrastructure to support the localization process.
