Mobile Environmental Visualization

Environmental processes are a major point of concern for researchers, environmental engineers and the general public. This paper presents a multi-user mobile system to visualize environmental processes. This system enables multiple users to visualize and simulate environmental processes, and also retrieve additional information in real time, while moving through the environmental area under analysis. Each user is able to contribute to the simulation and assess the impact of adding or removing agents to or from the model, respectively. This system uses a modular approach, allowing its deployment through different platforms. Two main modules compose the system under development: a geo-referenced model and an Augmented Reality (AR) composition module. The georeferenced model describes the environmental processes being modelled and tracks all users. The AR composition module allows users to visualize the geo-referenced model evolution and to interact with the model through two different views, namely animated map view and AR view.
