CNBC: A Snapchat patent application would map the world in an augmented reality database

CNBC: A Snapchat patent application would map the world in an augmented reality database. “The application, published yesterday but filed in late 2015, could apply to either a phone-based app or to augmented reality glasses. In the process it covers, Snapchat would first pinpoint a user’s approximate location with GPS or a similar system. Then, it would match images from the user’s camera against a set of what the filing calls ‘structure facade data.'”
