Abstract. The aim of the paper is to describe the technology of creating and adding Augmented Reality to school atlas. No new atlas was created and there is no need of creating one. A current school atlas is used as a base for adding Augmented Reality. Different software, applications and tools for creating AR are presented for Windows, Android and iOS. All of them do not require previous knowledge of programming and are generally easier to use. The steps which a cartographer has to go through are presented, as well as the problems he/she meets and needs to solve in creating an atlas with AR. A classification of Augmented Reality devices is presented. A description of how the use of such technologies act as learning resources for students and its capability to effect learning outcomes is also presented.
