Bigger projects require bigger storage. That’s where Wikitude’s Cloud Recognition comes in! The Wikitude SDK includes on-device or offline recognition, meaning, your app has the ability to recognize up to 1,000 images without a network connection. However, there are projects and apps that need to recognize more than 1,000 images. The solution for this is our cloud-based image recognition service.

Wikitude’s Cloud Recognition service allows you to work with thousands of target images hosted in the cloud offering you a storage limit of 100GB. Wikitude’s technology provides for a very quick response time and high recognition rate.

Example: Wine label cloud recognition

An enterprise use case for the Wikitude Cloud Recognition service can be found in the wine industry. Here, a vast number of different packaging and labels require a large database of targets that can be scanned and recognized.

1.000 target images would be a good start, but in industries where there are millions of options, the Wikitude Cloud Recognition service is the suitable addition to the Wikitude SDK.
