Hey guys,

I was wondering if anyone knows of an app that works like Google Sky, however, you can use your terrain.
For example, lets say I go for a walk in the mountains, and I come across a mountain range, I would like to point
my Nexus 5 to that mountain, and an app would tell me what the mountain is called.


Thanks in advanced

How would you use Google Earth with the camera.
I am thinking more of the lines of how Google Goggles work. Scan the mountain, and then it tells you the info.

Some sort of visual search, Google Earth hybrid? Could be cool though I'm not sure how much interest there would really be.

Field Trip?
Sounds something like Google's Field Trip app.
