The article explores the potential of augmented reality (AR) applications on different digital media technologies.

There has been a growing number of location-based page map data, geocoded Web pages and live sensor data that can be viewed using mobile phone's augmented reality applications. These include the Keyhole Markup Language, a map description language used by Google Maps and Google Earth. The tools and possible uses of AR in journalism are also discussed.
