Abstract: Over the years, the usefulness of geospatial data, in any given field, has been well established and countless innovations in the usage of such data have appeared. However, traditional geomatic tools used for the exploitation of data, despite their remarkable technological evolution in recent years, still contain certain limits concerning 3D visualization, interaction and their collaboration capacity that can limit spatial comprehension by a public of non-expert users. To overcome these limits, augmented reality technologies demonstrate interesting possibilities regarding the interaction and visualization of 3D geospatial data. In spite of the recent technological advances, these types of applications remain poorly explored, especially in geospatial contexts. Consequently, the development of geospatial augmented reality systems remains a laborious and experimental process. Considering this, we propose a study to establish the basis for the development of geospatial interactive and collaborative augmented reality systems. We have chosen to inscribe this study in the urban design and planning context, a domain of application for which the interaction and visualization of space plays a central role. The first part of this study presents the results of our literary and conceptual research, undertaken prior to the development of our prototype. The second part presents the prototype developed following the Unified Process methodology for software development as well as the results of the prototype experimentation step conducted afterwards. This research project completed, it appears obvious to us that augmented reality presents an interesting potential to overcome the limits of traditional geomatic tools. However, the realization of a complete solution would require the intervention of a larger pool of resources that are unavailable in the scope of a master’s project.
