Immersive Analytics (IA) and consumer adoption of augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR) head-mounted displays (HMDs) are both rapidly growing. When used in conjunction, stereoscopic IA environments can offer improved user understanding and engagement; however, it is unclear how the choice of stereoscopic display impacts user interactions within an IA environment. This paper presents a pilot study that examines the impact of stereoscopic display type on object manipulation and environmental navigation using consumer-available AR and VR displays. This work finds that the display type can impact how users manipulate virtual content, how they navigate the environment, and how able they are to answer questions about the represented data.
