Augmented Reality applications are more and more widely used nowadays. With help of it the real physical environment could be extended by computer generated virtual elements. These virtual elements can be for example important context-aware information. With Semantic Web it is possible among others to handle data which come from heterogeneous sources. As a result we have the opportunity to combine Semantic Web and Augmented Reality utilizing the benefits of combination of these technologies. The obtained system may be suitable for daily use with wide range of applications in field of tourism, entertainment, navigation, ambient assisted living, etc. The purpose of my research is to develop a prototype of general framework which satisfies the above criteria.
