About SAN

SAN is a GPS based augmented reality mobile application.

The SAN application was created using a completely new and unique solution. It allows the formation of GPS based large-scale virtual structures that can be seen on a smart device as 3D objects in augmented reality. They can be viewed in the real space from various angles and you can move through them. The virtual objects have permanent GPS locations without being tied to optical markers or planes, as is the case with other augmented reality applications.

SAN is a new, planetary scale virtual space interwoven with the environment providing unlimited creative freedom. This virtual space becomes visible with the aid of the augmented reality application SAN.

The SAN project author is artist Gints Gabrāns.

The SAN application can be used in both the Android and IOS environment.


How to use SAN:

⁃      when opening the application, keep the mobile device still to ensure its precision. In case of an error, restart the application.

⁃      the "DOWNLOAD" plug-in gives access to a new object if you are in its zone;

⁃      an Internet connection is only required for downloading the application and the objects that can be seen in it. Afterwards it works using only GPS;


SAN can be downloaded for free from Google Play and App Store. The object will be visible to any user who has downloaded the application and who is in the defined zone where the object has been inserted. The object is inserted with the selected GPS coordinates and can be seen in a zone with a selected and defined radius.

SAN uses 3D models.

The SAN application won’t function on devices without GPS and a gyroscope.
