Virtual Reality for Sensor Data Visualization and Analysis
  DOI :  10.2352/ISSN.2470-1173.2018.03.ERVR-451  Published OnlineJanuary 2018

The visualization and analysis of sensor data is an important aspect of geovisualization, and Virtual Reality-related technology is increasingly used in this context. Here we present the results of a student project which supports users in recording data (such as environment temperature, humidity and light intensity) with a Texas Instruments SensorTag® and subsequently visualizing the data on a smartphone using mobile Virtual Reality technology. The project resulted in two different applications, which both employ a 2D component for data localization and recording, as well as a 3D component to explore the data on a smartphone. In this paper, we describe our results and summarize our experiences regarding the creation and usage of such software and mobile VR environments.
