There are various kinds of wireless network devices, such as cellular phone and wireless sensors, around us in a ubiquitous environment. Unlike a wired network, we cannot grasp the exact status of a wireless network in real space. Moreover, it is difficult to understand the relationships of connectivity intuitively, since network management software is used in a virtual two-dimensional space. We propose and implement EVANS (Embodied Visualization with AR for Network System) as a visualization system for wireless networks. EVANS shows the status of a wireless network on an interface that uses AR technology, which allows us to grasp the status among nodes intuitively. In addition, we can use EVANS to actually manipulate nodes in real space by manipulating the annotations on the AR interface.
