We wanted to explore new ways of visualizing vast amounts of data in a meaningful and possibly also in an engaging & beautiful way. We explored how using "AR" (Augmented Reality) and 3-D could be beneficial to seeing and discussing data in a more engaging way. In general big datasets can be quite a challenge to really understand, even more so, when the results or insights need to be communicated to stakeholders that are not used to scientific or mathematical visualizations. AR-3D (sometimes also called "Mixed Reality?) can help to create visualizations that are easier to grasp or just more engaging to non-tech-people. Another possible advantage we wanted to explore is the potential of 3-D to allow for more data to be shown at the same time.
