On Spatial Perception Issues In Augmented Reality Based Immersive Analytics


Beyond other domains, the field of immersive analytics makes use of Augmented Reality techniques to successfully support users in analyzing data. When displaying ubiquitous data integrated into the everyday life, spatial immersion issues like depth perception, data localization and object relations become relevant. Although there is a variety of techniques to deal with those, they are difficult to apply if the examined data or the reference space are large and abstract. In this work, we discuss observed problems in such immersive analytics systems and the applicability of current countermeasures to identify needs for action.
