Scientists and engineers have a need to understand their data in context. Often, the data they are studying happens as a response to an external stimulus. Viewing scientific data alone shows the effect but many times the cause is unknown. This paper describes taking augmented reality (AR) into the field to provide context for data display. This project focuses on visualizing events that occur inside articulated structures. Articulated structures are used because examining their shape can help us retrieve the structure's location and orientation to adequately create AR synthetic views of the data. Future project directions are also discussed.
