Plus some new concepts:
  • Thumbnail Texture is an automatically collected screenshot of the environment that is triggered when the map quality is very good, i.e., when there are lots of feature collected in a small area. The thumbnail is presented to the user when they want to load and relocalize their scene, and it is intended to help with relocalization. Example: You just put notes all over a large room and clicked save. When you go to load the scene and see your notes pop up, a thumbnail picture of a table in that room is showed to you. You point the device at the table and everything relocalizes instantly!
  • Map List presents a list of all your maps when you click the "My Maps" button. The list is associated to your API key and presents all the maps under that API key.
