Landslides are the most widespread geological event. They can cause big amounts of deaths as well as economic losses. There are several processes of monitoring, although the visual inspection in the early stages of the movements should be enhanced. On the other hand, the construction industry is at the edge of digitalisation and emergent technologies are being developed and implemented, such as Augmented Reality, BIM and 3D printing. This thesis, hence, aims to propose an Augmented Reality app with the objective of enhancing visual geotechnical on-site inspections in order to make them more effective and mitigate future risks.
