  • It depends on what exactly you want to do with the augmented reality.

    You can use the GeoLocation and compass sensors to know where the device is and what direction it points (see Choosing the right sensors to use ) so you can calculate what to show. There are several ways to display this. For simple output you can overlay Xaml elements over your display. For more complicated you may want to implement a Media Foundation Transform (MFT) to embed the information within a video stream.

    There are a number of articles and videos which go into this in more depth.
