Further Reading Suggestions by Chhavi 

1. Visualizing Big Data with augmented and virtual reality: challenges and research agenda by Ekaterina Olshannikova, Aleksandr Ometov, Yevgeni Koucheryavy & Thomas Olsson

This paper provides a multi-disciplinary overview of the research issues and achievements in the field of Big Data and its visualization techniques and tools. The main aim is to summarize challenges in visualization methods for existing Big Data, as well as to offer novel solutions for issues related to the current state of Big Data Visualization.

2. Explorations in the Use of Augmented Reality for Geographic Visualization by Nicholas R. Hedley, Mark Billinghurst, Lori Postner, Richard May and Hirokazu Kato

This paper describes two explorations in the use of hybrid user interfaces for collaborative geographic data visualization. Their first interface combines three technologies: augmented reality (AR), immersive virtual reality (VR), and computer vision-based hand and object tracking. The second interface explores alternative interface techniques, including a zoomable user interface, paddle interactions, and pen annotations.

3. MultiFi: Multi Fidelity Interaction with Displays On and Around the Body by Jens Grubert, Matthias Heinisch, Aaron J. Quigley, Dieter Schmalstieg

This paper presents MultiFi, an interactive system that combines the strengths of multiple displays and overcomes the seams of mobile interaction with widgets distributed over multiple devices. A comparative user study indicates that combined head-mounted display and smartwatch interfaces can outperform interaction with single wearable devices.
