i would like to know how to determine the location of an object pointed at by the camera on an ios and android,
My thinking is the location of the user/camera is determined by using the location services on the mobile device, utilize the compass and camera in the phone to determine the distance to object(building) in the center of the camera view?
utililize the distance and compass/angles to determine the lat/lon of the pointed at building. Reverse geo-code the coordinate to get the actual address.
Is this feasible? are there any API's provided by Android/IOS that would facilitate this?
