Large wall-sized displays show great potential for data analysis due to their sheer size making it possible to visualize large amounts of data at once. This helps in understanding complex, multivariate data sets but highlighting their connections.

But what if there was a better way?

Scientists from Interactive Media Lab at Technische Universitat Dresden, Germany propose using a combination of large interactive displays with personal head-mounted Augmented Reality (AR)  for data exploration and analysis. Projecting data on large displays alone poses challenges of perception, multi-user support, and managing data density and complexity.

To address these issues, they have contributed proposed design space consisting of spatial alignment of display, visualizations, and objects in AR space; which parts of visualization can be augmented; and, how AR can be used to display personal views to show additional information and minimize the disturbance caused by multiple data analysts.

Read more about their exemplary techniques for extending visualization with AR and how it will affect design space in this open access article from IEEE Transactions on Visualization and Computer Graphics.
