Augmented Reality: A New Visualisation Method for GIS

I gave a presentation at CASA at UCL.
As ubiquitous computing and pervasive computing have become more and more implemented in our lives, we have become surrounded by more intelligent objects, and this has made our environment more complex. There are a lot of limitations to using current geovisualization techniques in trying to visualise such a complex real world. Augmented reality can be a promising technology to overcome this limitation, because augmented reality can provide dynamic and very realistic 3D virtual views.

This presentation was about my research background, introducing augmented reality, and some experimental studies about using tag-based augmented reality such as ARTag, as well as mobile augmented reality such as Layar.
