Description

There has been an increasing growth in the use of GIS, the amount of spatial data available, and the relative accessibility to GIS tools to non-expert users. There have also been considerable advancements in the augmented reality/mixed reality (AR/MR) tools and capabilities. In this research, we analyze the potential benefits of AR/MR-enabled GIS and we develop a framework of the affordances provided by combining those technologies vis-Ã -vis the demands and challenges of effective disaster response.

A Framework of AR-Enabled GIS Affordances for Disaster Response
