Abstract

In this paper we present an approach for visualizing time-oriented data of dynamic scenes in an on-site AR view. Visualizations of time-oriented data have special challenges compared to the visualization of arbitrary virtual objects. Usually, the 4D data occludes a large part of the real scene. Additionally, the data sets from different points in time may occlude each other. Thus, it is important to design adequate visualization techniques that provide a comprehensible visualization. In this paper we introduce a visualization concept that uses overview and detail techniques to present 4D data in different detail levels. These levels provide at first an overview of the 4D scene, at second information about the 4D change of a single object and at third detailed information about object appearance and geometry for specific points in time. Combining the three levels of detail with interactive transitions such as magic lenses or distorted viewing techniques enables the user to understand the relationship between them. Finally we show how to apply this concept for construction site documentation and monitoring.
