Abstract

We present a case study with user evaluation of the usefulness of a mobile augmented reality (AR) system for visualizing urban plans of an area reconstruction project. The project plans included several new buildings amid existing buildings that have a high cultural and historical value. Participants, including city officers in the decision-making body, used the mobile AR system along with paper visualizations of the plans and evaluated the usefulness and overall strengths and weaknesses of the AR system. The results indicate that AR was found to be a highly useful instrument to visualize building plans in a holistic and intuitive way from the first-person point of view. The system facilitated decision making and enriched the understanding of the plan, thus having a clear additional value over the traditional printout-based visualizations. Additionally, perceived weaknesses and ideas for improving the system are presented
