 学生のMAULANA, Hanhan さん(博士後期課程3年、ヒューマンライフデザイン領域金井研究室)が国際会議 第15回EURECA 2021 (International Engineering and Computing Research Conference)において Best Research Paper Presentation Award を受賞しました。

 第15回EURECA 2021の目的は、工学を学ぶ学生に研究環境を体験する機会を提供することです。さらに、この国際会議は、学生が他の研究者とのネットワークを拡大するためのプラットフォームとしても機能し、研究者と産業専門家の両方から研究プロジェクトに関して貴重なフィードバックを得ることができます。


Potential Agricultural Land Suitability Visualization Using Augmented reality Geographic Information System (AR-GIS)

Hanhan Maulana & Hideaki Kanai

This study aims to visualize the potential agricultural land suitability using the Augmented Reality Geographical Information System (AR-GIS). AR-GIS can provide an immersive experience to users. Bandung Regency area was chosen as the study area because it has good potential for agriculture. The challenge that motivates the development of augmented reality in the visualization of land suitability is that farmers can use GIS practically to assist in decision making. This study has three main stages. The first and second stages integrated the Multi-Criteria Decision Analysis (MCDA) with the Geographic Information System (GIS) method. The first stage aims to determine potential commodities using the MCDA method by considering economic, environmental, and plant characteristics factors. The second stage describes the land suitability evaluation process for each commodity using the GIS method. Based on the evaluation results, cabbage, potatoes, and onion are the most suitable plant to be cultivated in the study area. This result is consistent with statistical data that shows that these commodities have the highest productivity. The third stage of this study explains the process of map visualization using augmented reality. AR-GIS is expected to be able to provide a better map visualization display. With good map visualization, information on the GIS can be easy to understand by the user. Furthermore, it is hoped that the AR-GIS will have a high level of usability.

It is a great honor to receive the award at the EURECA 2021 Conference. Even though the conference was being held online due to the Covid-19 pandemic, it was interesting to make presentations and share knowledge with other researchers. I am grateful to be a part of JAIST because JAIST provides an excellent research environment. I am also highly grateful to my supervisor, associate professor Hideaki Kanai, who has guided, support, and provided suggestions and input on my research.
