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.
Storing the "best" spatial anchor between multiple devices?
I am looking at an experience where multiple HoloLens devices should share the location of anchors. Updates do not need to be realtime or near/realtime. However, we would want to make sure that the "best" Anchor is stored for a given position.
Meaning, e.g. not the anchor of a devices that has only seen/experienced the smallest part of the room in that area in a specific angle, but rather the device that "has been around" and seen the relevant area, hopefully relatively recently, at high level of detail.
Is there any metric to "judge" the extensiveness and data quality of a given spatial anchor?
Just using the size of a serialization might not be the best.
