Locating objects in the environment can be a difficult task, especially when the objects are occluded. With Augmented Reality, we can alternate our perceived reality by augmenting it with visual cues or removing visual elements of reality, helping users to locate occluded objects. However, to our knowledge, it has not yet been evaluated which visualization technique works best for estimating the distance and size of occluded objects in optical see-through head-mounted Augmented Reality. To address this, we compare four different visualization techniques derived from previous work in a laboratory user study. Our results show that techniques utilizing additional aid (textual or with a grid) help users to estimate the distance to occluded objects more accurately. In contrast, a realistic rendering of the scene, such as a cutout in the wall, resulted in higher distance estimation errors.
