With new technologies, such as mobile communications, internet of things, and wide applications of social media, organizations generate a huge volume of data, much faster than several years ago. Big data, characterized by high volume, diversity and velocity, increasingly drives decision making and is changing the landscape of business intelligence, from governments to private organizations, from communities to individuals. Big data analytics that discover insights from evidences has a high demand for computing efficiency, knowledge discovery, problem solving, and event prediction. We dedicate a special section of Issue 4/2017 to Big Data. Prospective authors are asked to make the submissions for this section no later than the 31st of May 2017, placing "BigData - " before the paper title in OpenConf.

Marker-based tracking systems provide fast, accurate and real-time tracking solution for controlled indoor augmented reality applications. Due to the short tracking distance of marker-based technique, this approach is rarely used in large indoor augmented reality applications. This paper presents the design and implementation of a new layered marker that extends the tracking distance to large environment. A step by step procedure is given to design a layered marker for any large indoor environment. The tracking method of the designed marker is presented for accurate results in a specific environment. The method of designing and tracking layered marker is demonstrated using a standard toolkit framework. The results produced while evaluating the layered marker reveal that this marker extends the tracking distance to large indoor augmented reality applications.
