4.2 Classifications of Augmented reality
There are two types of simple augmented reality: marker-based which uses cameras and visual cues, and marker less which use positional data such as a mobile 's GPS and compass.
i) Marker based AR
Various types of markers are images that can be detected by a camera, and used by the software as the location for virtual assets placed in a scene. Most of them are black and white markers. Simple augmented reality markers can consist of some basic shapes made up of black squares against a white background. More elaborate markers can be created using simple images that are still read properly by a camera, and these codes can even take the form of tattoos.

ii) Marker less AR
In marker-less augmented reality the image is gathered from the internet and displayed on a particular location (gathered using GPS). The application doesn’t require a marker to display the content. It is more interactive than marker based augmentation.

4.3 AR based approach
