It’s no secret we love taking the Matterport technology into the world of digital real estate marketing. We are also excited about using Matterport for businesses via the Google Maps API that upgrades the traditional 360-degree “fishbowl lens” Streetview tour with an interactive immersive 3D experience that Matterport produces. Matterport recently posted about this Google partnership in May of 2017. It is just starting to get rolling now. Here’s an excerpt:
So why does this matter? You will get high-quality image capture in a short amount of time with a lot of versatility. How’s that for efficiency? Through this new tool, photographers will be able to upload the captured content to an additional platform, as well as utilize Matterport’s ability to create and export photos, 3D file formats, and VR experiences. Just capture once and then publish in multiple media formats and to multiple platforms increases productivity ten-fold.
More efficiency translates into better service for customers and lowers costs per image capture compared to DSLR cameras and software stitching solutions. As a panoramic photographer and Matterport Service Partner, gone are the hours I spent stitching together disparate photospheres and linking constellations to publish to Google Street View. The Matterport process will be more efficient than the traditional panoramic photography workflow, stitching and moderating that many of us are accustomed to when creating a Google Street View virtual tour.
