    Augmented Asbury Park is a free mobile experience created by the authors and their collaborative team, which involves the reconstructions of key historic landmarks in augmented reality on the Asbury Park boardwalk in Asbury Park, New Jersey, USA and off-site. The project invites people to disrupt their present experience by using their own mobile devices and locations to interact with digital representations of historic structures. Augmented Asbury Park superimposes interactive 3-D history on the present using augmented reality (AR) technologies, including both geolocation-based and vision-based technologies.
