We have decided to phase out the Mixed Reality Forums over the next few months in favor of other ways to connect with us.
The first way we want to connect with you is our mixed reality developer program, which you can sign up for at https://aka.ms/IWantMR.
The plan between now and the beginning of May is to clean up old, unanswered questions that are no longer relevant. The forums will remain open and usable.
On May 1st we will be locking the forums to new posts and replies. They will remain available for another three months for the purposes of searching them, and then they will be closed altogether on August 1st.
So, where does that leave our awesome community to ask questions? Well, there are a few places we want to engage with you. For technical questions, please use Stack Overflow, and tag your questions using either hololens or windows-mixed-reality. If you want to join in discussions, please do so in the HoloDevelopers Slack, which you can join by going to https://aka.ms/holodevelopers. And always feel free to hit us up on Twitter @MxdRealityDev.
Improve spatial mapping during exhibition
We've made a collaborative application in hololens. It performs well in our office, but when we are doing exhibitions spatial mapping becomes confused, probably because of the many people standing around the scene
We are looking for a way to improve this. Currently we have one world anchor. Could we improve localization by adding more anchors?
I'm also thinking of using spatial understanding to locate where the scene is (above a table for example) and where the floor is. Could it be possible to ignore the people when they are over the floor?
Well, that's where we are right now so if anybody has met this problem I'll be very interested of the way they have handle it.
