Augmented Reality Technology to Display Infrastructure Data in The Field Work



Infrastructure, Data, Augmented Reality, Field Studies, Efficiency


Urbanization, which took place in parallel with technological development, has increased rapidly throughout the world. In order to increase the welfare level of the societies living in cities, infrastructure studies have been given importance in the design of cities. It ensures that infrastructure services such as electricity, drinking water, sewerage, natural gas, telecommunications and Internet services are provided for the benefit of people. In order to provide infrastructure services in a sound manner, it is important to keep track of the infrastructure inventory and carry out regular maintenance and repairs, in addition to urban planning. In terms of providing infrastructure services, ensuring that existing infrastructure data is displayed during field studies will increase the efficiency of work. In our study, the visualization of the water and wastewater infrastructure was done in an augmented reality environment. The pilot study conducted in Şanlıurfa, Karaköprü District, Maşuk Region, aimed to increase the efficiency of infrastructure services.
