Data visualization in VR/AR: Static Data Analysis in Buildings

Virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) are two ways to make the direct perception of data through images of virtual data. People can collect data on temperature, humidity, and particle concentration at different locations in a building and then visually represent the data in three visual formats at different times by swiping to change the date and moment of the data. It is possible to monitor the indoor environmental conditions of an office during a period to test the comfort level of this room for humans. Both VR and AR could be beneficial as two techniques for people to have a better understanding of the indoor environment quality and provides a tool for people to choose the most suitable location for themselves within the office.
