Abstract:The rainwater management infrastructure of the city of Enschede, the Netherlands, is being improved through several large rainwater management infrastructure projects executed by the Municipality of Enschede. The “Groene Linie” is one of these projects: a large rainwater buffering installation capable of temporarily storing 7 million litres of rainwater. The Municipality of Enschede wants to raise public awareness about (the necessity of) this installation. Therefore, this bachelor thesis describes a mobile Augmented Reality application prototype which is capable of showing a (simplified) overview of the inner (underground) workings of the “Groene Linie” installation at several physical locations known as Points of Interests along this installation. This is realized through animated 3D models, supported by an explanatory voice-over. This solution was evaluated together with several representatives of the Municipality of Enschede while adhering to constraints imposed by COVID-19. This evaluation showed a very positive attitude of the Municipality of Enschede towards the technical accuracy of the final prototype, as well as towards the way in which it translates the highly technical inner workings of the “Groene Linie” installation to a storyline that is comprehensible for a wide audience. Finally, the client intends to further develop the Augmented Reality application prototype into a final product outside the scope of this project.
