ARCore real world (GPS) location

Hi, there is any way in ue4 to spawn actor in real world location in AR?
Spawn an actor in a gps location?


I don’t think that is GPS location is included in Unreal. However, this marketplace solution probably could help you: GeoLocation in Code Plugins - UE Marketplace . You could then use geo fencing to spawn actors when you are at a particular place. Further, I would think you could have your device get a survey of the area via AR to take over the GPS course information and do more fine placing of your actors previously saved.

Hi, gps location is included in unreal engine (i can get my gps location on phone), tested. Just no idea how to spawn actor on a location, cannot find any tutorial, or info about this. Your lined plugin is not updated since 4.18 :frowning:

My apologies. I know the plugin was a bit dated; but thought it would be a good starting place - obviously I was unaware of the built in version - I did do a search before I commented, but I guess I wasn’t thorough enough. I also think I misinterpreted your question. I thought geo fencing would work where if you are between a particular set of coordinates, spawn - like spawning any actor in any environment.

Phone GPS units likely won’t be accurate enough to spawn actors at precise locations anyway. They have an accuracy of around 10m I believe.

Hi, could you tell me how and where I can learn about what you said: “gps location is included in unreal engine” please? Thanks. :slight_smile:
