This augmented reality map app isn't just practical in terms of helping you get around or orienting yourself when you get lost, the Wikitude app is also an educational resource for tourists. In addition to making you feel like you're stepping right into the map, the app also overlays helpful information in the scene unfolding around you.

Wikitude searches Wikipedia to offer tourist attractions, local destinations and other points of interest. The augmented reality map app can help you search for accommodations and other travel resources. It even ties into TripAdvisor, Foursquare, Yelp and similar third-party apps. It also gives you the option of seeing what's around you in camera mode, on a map or as a list.

The information the app provides as you're walking through a new space has educational benefits too.
