We present the design and current prototype implementation of MelissAR, an augmented reality system for visual analytics of honey bee behaviour in the field. The system is intended to support bee keepers and other relevant users to monitor honey bee populations and to make effective decisions based on their status. The implementation of MelissAR is based on informed design choices with regard to usability in the field, effective communication of relevant information, and robustness to varying outdoor conditions.
