Below is a list of the most frequently asked questions regarding Virtual Tours.
What is a Matterport 360 Virtual Tour?
A virtual tour is a simulated first-person view of an environment, usually indoors. They allow your potential clients and customers to view and engage an immersive, high resolution and photorealistic walkthrough of your property or space.
360° tours are composed of a sequence of “flat” panorama images linked together via a web interface to allow the end-user to jump to different positions in the space.
3D tours are the next evolution in virtual walkthroughs, allowing the end-user to smoothly navigate through a fully 3D environment, resulting in a more natural and realistic experience.
How does it work?
We scan and photograph your space. We process the captures and produce the virtual tour. You can then embed the tour to your website or mobile app ready for use.
Unlike traditional 3D virtual tours, our camera equipment doesn’t just take pictures. In addition to high-resolution 4k images, our cameras use sensors to scan and produce a 3D “mesh” of the surrounding environment.
The images and mesh are then combined and stitched together using specialist software to form a fully immersive and interactive 3D environment.
Can you capture outdoor spaces?
3D virtual tours can be used outdoors as a virtual walkthrough tour but creating 3D “mesh” models is slightly more difficult due to direct sunlight which can interfere with the sensors used to generate the 3D mesh.
How much does it cost?
