Fast adoption and sophistication of mobile technology has facilitated the development of new fields of technology. One of these technologies is location-based augmented reality that displays location specific information upon a user’s environment. This paper seeks to assess if this technology can be used to effectively visualise GI, specifically flooding data, in the urban environment of Edinburgh, Scotland. The testing of the final app with participants out in the field shows that a mobile device can effectively influence an individual’s perceptions of an environment. There remain some questions as to the benefits of GI when compared to legacy forms of GI visualisation raised by the limitations of the study size and concerns of the raised by the study’s testers.
