Evaluation of spatial abilities through tabletop AR


Research has been done into improving the means by which we organise and manage information. The usefulness of 2D versus 3D interfaces and environments has also been debated and evaluated. Human spatial abilities can be used to store more information about particular objects including their position in space. Our hypothesis states that as 3D objects contain more information about themselves and their relative position in space than 2D objects, although users take longer to process this information, they should be more accurate when searching and retrieving 3D objects.
