The wide availability of previously acquired, geo-referenced imagery enables automatic video based solutions for high precision object geo-localization and cooperative visualization. We present a system which geo-references objects seen in UAV video streams, distributes this information in a sensor network and visualizes them on modern smartphones using augmented reality techniques. The feasibility of the approach was experimentally validated using Mini-UAV ("MD-400") and high altitude UAV video footage in combination with modern off-the-shelve smartphones. Applications are widespread and include for instance crisis and disaster management or military applications.
