The Scheller Teacher Education Program has been developing Augmented Reality (AR) games software for a number of years. In addition to allowing students to play AR games, the software allows students to create their own games based on a map, a set of characters, and a plot of their choosing. In an earlier version of the software, students were allowed to add "substances" (e.g. oil spills) to their games. The functionality for doing so did not give the student much control and was unintuitive to use. In this thesis, I propose and analyze a prototype of the design and implementation of a new, improved interface that allows students to add a generalized version of a "substance" to their AR games. This generalization of a "substance" is termed a "data layer"
