Abstract: Visualizing the status of construction by using three-dimensional models of structures in the planning and construction stages allows smoother communication between stakeholders, more efficient construction oversight, and improvement of quality and safety of the construction. We thus developed a system where three-dimensional model design diagrams are projected on pictures from on-site monitoring cameras by applying augmented reality technology. We also studied a method to clarify the view of the structure and to visualize its scale before construction. Field tests confirmed that virtual reality models could be accurately superimposed, that positional relationship and scale of structures could be made clearer, and that the system could function without problem. These results suggest that the proposed method is effective for visualizing structures in the construction stage, and it thus makes construction plans easier to understand.
