BACKGROUND

Service providers (e.g., wireless, cellular, Internet, content, social network, etc.) and device manufacturers are continually challenged to deliver value and convenience to consumers by, for example, providing compelling network services. One area of interest has been the development of mapping and navigating graphics (e.g., digital maps) and/or images (e.g., 360° panoramic street-level views of various locations and points of interest) augmented with, for instance, navigation tags and location relevant content. Typically, navigation, mapping, and other similar services can display either panoramic views or two-dimensional rendered maps. Content information is typically limited to use in 2D map views, and augmented reality views that attempt to display content tend to provide an unstable, cluttered display.

SOME EXAMPLE EMBODIMENTS

Therefore, there is a need for an approach for rendering a perspective view of objects and content related thereto for location-based services on a mobile device.

According to one embodiment, a method comprises causing, at least in part, rendering of a perspective view showing one or more objects in a field of view. The method also comprises retrieving content associated with an object of the one or more objects in the field of view. The method further comprises causing, at least in part, rendering of a graphic representation relating to the content on a surface of the object visible in the perspective view in a user interface for a location-based service of a mobile device.

According to another embodiment, an apparatus comprising at least one processor, and at least one memory including computer program code, the at least one memory and the computer program code configured to, with the at least one processor, cause, at least in part, the apparatus to cause, at least in part, rendering of a perspective view showing one or more objects in a field of view. The apparatus is also caused to retrieve content associated with an object of the one or more objects in the field of view. The apparatus is further caused to cause, at least in part, rendering of a graphic representation relating to the content on a surface of the object visible in the perspective view in a user interface for a location-based service of the apparatus, wherein the apparatus is a mobile device.

According to another embodiment, a computer-readable storage medium carrying one or more sequences of one or more instructions which, when executed by one or more processors, cause, at least in part, an apparatus to perform causing, at least in part, rendering of a perspective view showing one or more objects in a field of view. The apparatus is also caused to perform retrieving content associated with an object of the one or more objects in the field of view. The apparatus is further caused to perform causing, at least in part, rendering of a graphic representation relating to the content on a surface of the object visible in the perspective view in a user interface for a location-based service of a mobile device.

According to another embodiment, an apparatus comprises means for causing, at least in part, rendering of a perspective view showing one or more objects in a field of view. The apparatus also comprises means for retrieving content associated with an object of the one or more objects in the field of view. The apparatus further comprises means for causing, at least in part, rendering of a graphic representation relating to the content on a surface of the object visible in the perspective view in a user interface for a location-based service of a mobile device.

Still other aspects, features, and advantages of the invention are readily apparent from the following detailed description, simply by illustrating a number of particular embodiments and implementations, including the best mode contemplated for carrying out the invention. The invention is also capable of other and different embodiments, and its several details can be modified in various obvious respects, all without departing from the spirit and scope of the invention. Accordingly, the drawings and description are to be regarded as illustrative in nature, and not as restrictive.

BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF THE DRAWINGS

The embodiments of the invention are illustrated by way of example, and not by way of limitation, in the figures of the accompanying drawings:
