Have you tried Google, or the Android developers' website?

Solution 1

At the risk of stating the obvious:

1) Write a list of aims you want to achieve, e.g. (display tags on famous buildings)
2) Break down the steps needed to fullfill your aims (e.g. Store location and information to display, provide a service to get the information from the DB, write an application to display the information over a live camera image).

You keep repeating step 2 until you have small enough units to work on to be able to google/get started.

Personally, I'd start at the application end: just try and get a hard coded label to display on a hard-coded position. This is likely to be the hardest task to sort as you are projecting a spacial co-ordinate onto a 2-D image (the camera image) based on a location which isn't the same as the one you are projecting you tag onto. When you have done this in a hard-coded way, you can see what data you need to store a position more clearly as you might need more than the physical co-ordinates.

In a word: no. You need to do your own research into the subject. If there are examples around then you can find them by searching with Google or try the CodeProject areticles section.

Why did you answer your own question with another question?
See Richard's answer. I've given general advice, break the problem down into small enough units to get started and Google as needed. If you then have specific problems, by all means ask here. If someone asks for a sample solution, most people infer that you are going to copy this to avoid doing work, even if that is not your intention. It is extremely unlikely you will get a sample as this is a non-trivial project which few people will have worked on.

android is new for me
by reading articles i created a simple camera view.
i got lot of articles focusing on open cv or opengl for it.

Can u tell which will be best one .
I don't know c#.
I know only php and android as i some articles i see they focus on using c# for that.

What will be best to start for ??

I've written precisely one Android app, not much more complicated than hello world so I really can't help you further. The best thing is to ask Android specific forums.
