The Area Target Generator (ATG) is a Vuforia developed desktop application that takes a 3D scanned model as input and generates an Area Target dataset in Unity and native formats, as well as a mesh in binary GLTF (GLB) format suitable for native development. The ATG connects via API token to your Matterport™ account to retrieve the Matterport™ scanned environment and to your Vuforia Developer Account for authentication.
