Augmented Reality at the Service of Participatory Urban Planning and Community Informatics – a case study from Vienna
Based on the analysis of two field tests in the City of Vienna, this article describes the advantages and disadvantages of using an augmented reality app in participation processes. Using the results of an applied research project “ways2gether – target group-specific use of AR and web 2.0 in participative traffic planning processes”, the possibilities of implementing AR in planning and participation processes are discussed. The article points out that augmented reality tools expand the repertoire of methods used in participation procedures and that they have the potential to support many phases of a planning and participation process.
