"The goal of my research was to develop a digital mediation system with urban data for a pedestrian immersed in the city, a link based on digital technologies to design, analyze and represent the urban space and access information in this urban space. Augmented reality is one of the tools for this mediation whose critical element is the location of the pedestrian and more specifically the pose computation of the camera.

Thus, the main focus of my work is on site geolocation using spatial data of different dimensions. I was interested in an upstream phase that requires the implementation of data models to keep track of changes in spatial data. Finally I looked at some uses of geolocation and pose computation. I conclude this work by presenting my research perspectives towards digital mediation with urban data for pedestrians. "
