For many data-driven tasks, like repairing a manufacturing machine or conducting a site visit to understand the existing conditions of a physical site, visualizing data in its original environmental context brings benefits to fulfil the task. Visualization methods that deal with linking of data to their origin are often grouped with the term "situated visualization”.
The goal of this work is to conduct a structured state-of-the-art overview of available approaches to situated visualization.
