Use Vertical Tracking in Augmented Reality Using NextNav and echo3D
First floor, second floor and third floor
NextNav Pinnacle SDK gives you precise, “floor-level” vertical positioning for any geolocation application. This is especially useful for Metaverse experiences that involve stairs, elevators, or services that require vertical triggers. Here’s how to use echo3D and NextNav together to build AR/VR apps that are aware of the device’s elevation!

In your echo3D console, download and import the latest Unity SDK through the Downloads menu on the top right corner.
In your NextNav account, download and import their Unity Plugin
Add metadata keys called z-location to each model.
In Unity, modify the echo3D.cs script and set the two variables <”YOUR-API-KEY”> and <”YOUR-SECRET-KEY”>.
Your Secret Key can be found on the left pane of the echo3D console, under the Security page.
Edit the echo3D.cs script to query only for assets that include the metadata z-location. Change the serverURL to get entries based on data by adding &data=z-location.
Change the script to use NextNav’s SDK to set the value of z-location based on the device’s location.
