Augmented and extended reality generally deals with the overlaying computer-generated and computer-presented information onto the real world or real-world models. New generation augmented and extended reality tools both proprietary, freeware and open source are now in use for teaching and learning in several discipline area such as medicine, aerospace, robotics etc. Augmented and extended reality tools are generally good for holistic learning and now increasingly getting popular in informal education in geospatial science as well. This article discusses, classifies and describes the capabilities of the currently available augmented and extended reality tools for the teaching and learning the fundamentals of geospatial science and particularly focuses on the topography and topographic processes. This article also describes the recently developed and re-designed augmented reality sandbox and presents tutorials based on the currently available augmented and extended reality tools aimed at achieving deep learning for teaching topography and topographic processes in geospatial science.
