Building information model visualisation in augmented reality

  title={Building information model visualisation in augmented reality},
  author={Vishak Dudhee and Vladimir Vukovic},
PurposeThe possibility of integrating building information in an augmented reality (AR) environment provides an effective solution to all phases of a building's lifecycle. This paper explores the integration of building information modelling (BIM) and AR to effectively visualise building information models in an AR environment and evaluates the currently available AR tools.Design/methodology/approachA BIM model of a selected office room was created and superimposed to the actual physical space…
