1. A method comprising:
generating, by a room identification system, a live room-object profile based on an image captured by an augmented reality presentation device during an augmented reality experience presented by the augmented reality presentation device, wherein:
the image depicts, from a particular vantage point, a particular room of a set of rooms associated with the augmented reality experience, and
the live room-object profile is implemented in a data structure indicating:
which objects, of a plurality of supported objects, are detected to be present within the particular room based on the image, and
for each individual object detected to be present within the particular room, an apparent size of the individual object from the particular vantage point determined based on a proportion of the image that is taken up by the individual object;
obtaining, by the room identification system, a set of reference room-object profiles for the set of rooms associated with the augmented reality experience;
determining, by the room identification system and based on the live room-object profile and the set of reference room-object profiles, that the augmented reality presentation device is located in the particular room of the set of rooms; and
providing, by the room identification system to the augmented reality presentation device, an indication of the determining that the augmented reality presentation device is located in the particular room.
