Visualising Environmental Corrosion in Outdoor Augmented Reality

Walsh, J. A. and Thomas, B. H.

    This paper provides a description of outdoor visualisation of environmental corrosion data. This system was developed to aid in the visual understanding of data from wireless sensors used to monitor large structures. Due to the laborious manual inspections required for large structures (such as bridges), wireless environmental sensors have been designed to automate this process. Our system visualizes this information in its real-world context using the Tinmith mobile outdoor augmented reality system. We provide an overview of the visualizations, outlining a user study that was conducted to determine the effectiveness of the visualizations in providing the user with context-sensitive information, along with the preliminary results of this study. The paper concludes with an overview of future work on the system and final thoughts.
