Green-Thumb Camera: LOD Application for Field IT

Green-Thumb Camera: LOD Application for Field IT

This video was recorded at 9th Extended Semantic Web Conference (ESWC), Heraklion 2012. Recently, home garden and green interior have been receiving attention due to the growing environmental consciousness and macrobiotics. However, it is not very simple to grow the greenery in an urban restricted space, then it occasionally results in overgrowth or extinction. Also, it is important for interior / exterior use to balance the greenery to a user's surrounding, but it is difficult for amateurs to imagine its future grown form. Therefore, we propose an Android application ``Green-Thumb Camera'' to query a plant from LOD Cloud to fit environmental conditions based of sensor information on smartphone, and overlay its grown form in the space using AR.
