This publication reports on a research project in which we set out to explore the advantages and disadvantages augmented reality (AR) technology has for visual data analytics. We developed a prototype of an AR data analytics application, which provides users with an interactive 3D interface, hand gesture-based controls and multi-user support for a shared experience, enabling multiple people to collaboratively visualize, analyze and manipulate data with high dimensional features in 3D space. Our…

A Survey of Needs and Features for Augmented Reality Collaborations in Collocated Spaces
A literature review and organization framework for classifying the collaboration needs and features that should be considered when designing headset-based augmented reality (AR) experiences for collocated settings and a list of design features and needs that are helpful to consider when designing for headset- based collaborative AR experiences.
A Survey of Marker-Less Tracking and Registration Techniques for Health & Environmental Applications to Augmented Reality and Ubiquitous Geospatial Information Systems
This paper provides a comprehensive overview of marker-less registration and tracking techniques and reviews their most important categories in the context of ubiquitous Geospatial Information Systems (GIS) and AR focusing to health and environmental applications.
A low-cost multi-user augmented reality application for data visualization
This work developed a hybrid proposal of an augmented reality prototype to interacting with cards through the mobile device to support the process of creating data visualization, allowing multiple users to interact simultaneously with data visualizations in the AR environment.
ReLive: Bridging In-Situ and Ex-Situ Visual Analytics for Analyzing Mixed Reality User Studies
ReLive is introduced: a mixed-immersion visual analytics framework for exploring and analyzing mixed reality user studies that combines an in-situ virtual reality view with a complementary ex-Situ desktop view.


Drawing into the AR-CANVAS : Designing Embedded Visualizations for Augmented Reality
The AR-CANVAS describes the part of a viewer’s field-of-view where information visualization is rendered in-situ with respect to visible and potentially invisible real-world objects.
Clusters, Trends, and Outliers: How Immersive Technologies Can Facilitate the Collaborative Analysis of Multidimensional Data
The results of group-based, expert walkthroughs show that ART can facilitate immersion in the data, a fluid analysis process, and collaboration, and a set of guidelines are provided to foster the development of immersive technologies as tools for the collaborative analysis of multidimensional data.
Exploring Data in Virtual Reality: Comparisons with 2D Data Visualizations
It is found that there is no overall task-workload difference between traditional visualizations and visualizations in VR, but there are differences in the accuracy and depth of insights that users gain.
HoloLens is more than air Tap: natural and intuitive interaction with holograms
This paper is using an additional sensor, a Microsoft Kinect, in order to allow users to interact naturally and intuitively with holographic content that is displayed on a HoloLens.
The future of augmented reality: Hololens - Microsoft's AR headset shines despite rough edges [Resources_Tools and Toys]
This morning I found myself looking all over my apartment for an interesting news article I wasn't able to finish yesterday. The search eventually took me to the living room, which was littered with
Holographic Visualisation of Radiology Data and Automated Machine Learning-based Medical Image Segmentation
Within this thesis we propose a platform for combining Augmented Reality (AR) hardware with machine learning in a user-oriented pipeline, offering to the medical staff an intuitive 3D visualization
