New interface technologies, such as virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) are making rapid inroads towards a broader audience. This development is driven by consumer application and games, but the same technology enables immersive and situated analytics. Instead of a desktop monitor, VR and AR displays can leverage the natural human understanding of space to communicate visual information more efficiently. Situated analytics delivers this visualization capability directly at a task location, for example, at a construction site or in a surgical operating theater. Users of situated analytics with an AR display can see the real world extended with relevant digital information stored in a digital twin and potentially enriched with simulation results. This talk will look at the state of the art in situated analytics and present a toolkit and selected application examples.
