Combining scans from the same location in order to remove "people" passing leonherbert 2 2 monthsJavieB (49): @leonherbert That would be great ! GSV Matterport App should publish on GSV the shots in 360.
Google Street View and NC Tech Istar Pulsar 3dvrwalkthrough 2 2 monthsGlennTremain (1642): I wish I was by a computer to make a video. Instead of putting in address start putting in business name and it should auto suggest. When it does click on it and submit and it should go into GSV. @Metroplex360 probably has something that will show.

Question of the Day: Published 3D Tours to GSV before Matterport charges? DanSmigrod 7 3 monthsDanSmigrod (16921): I would like to think that the billing is based on the date transmitted: not the date that you received email confirmations. Best, Dan
Issues with Google Street View leonherbert 12 3 monthsleonherbert (187): @Metroplex360 i agree 100% I have the tours in Pano2VR, I added nadir patches with them. Only problem is that I passed ownership to the company. I will see if they will give me google credentials to publish the tour again with their credentials.
Question of the Day: Do you charge a flat fee or recurring $$$ for GSV? DanSmigrod 3 3 monthsleonherbert (187): Flat fee, it is easier enough for a client to look up what Matterport charges and then in my eyes you look like a chump, since I am not adding a value added service past the scan, and I am not been charged by anyone to keep the tour up (YET)

Question of the Day: Pricing Strategy for Matterport to Google Street View? DanSmigrod 3 3 monthsChemistrydoc (658): I love the pricing matrix that @Metroplex360 shared a while back on the forum and have pretty much incorporated that into my pricing. I think that one has to differentiate between clients that only want upload into GSV versus others for whom the hosting and use of the Matterport showcase will be also useful. Also, the price matrix that I mentioned needs to be upwards adjusted in light of Matterport's upcoming charging for the conversion and...
Publishing to Google Street View: Matterport versus CUPIX Pricing DanSmigrod 6 3 monthsMetroplex360 (8620): I have many clients who approach us for Google Street View. We use it as a conversation starter to share how Matterport is best from their website and Google Street View is discoverable on search / Maps. You may not believe that Google Street View has value as in your own experiences, you don't tend to use it. Quite frankly, I do not use it either. I've been surprised how important many people feel that it is and how much they enjoy using it...
Question of the Day: Why not offer Google Street View for business too? DanSmigrod 2 3 monthsRichierichks (655): That is what I have been focusing my business on. I have had pretty good luck with offering the MP and GSV to businesses. I've gotten way more referrals from Google Trusted Photographer's website than Matterport. In fact, I don't believe I have ever gotten any referrals from Matterport in the year and a half that I have owned the camera.

Matterport to Google Street View problem VRPort 4 6 monthsTrustedPhotoDC (919): You can’t replace the old tour by publishing a new tour. Depending on the date that the tour was posted, either the owner of the GMB account needs to delete or the photographer who published the photospheres will need to be contacted to delete the tour. The one item to note is if the tour has not been migrated, then it cannot he deleted until migration has finished.

How to hide a scan in Google Street View? Queen_City_3D 17 10 monthsRichierichks (655): @Queen_City_3D You would have to reorient the tour so that the direction that you want your starting point to be is north. So, you would line up the pano in the viewing window to the starting view you desire then hit the “set north” (I think that’s what it’s called) button above the viewing window.
Zoom on Google Street View Richierichks 1 10 monthsRichierichks (655): I had noticed that zoom on GSV was a little odd and I just figured it out. It actually zooms to wherever your cursor is! It's really odd when your cursor is to one side of the screen and it looks like you are turning your head while zooming! Really cool, I wish Matterport was like that!

2018 is the Year of Google Street View DanSmigrod 3 10 monthsMetroplex360 (8620): Maybe if Google can... #1) Improve navigation. Despite adding links between panos, most windows into Google Street View allow navigation in a Matterport-style manner (pancake navigation) without any regard to walls or connections that a pro has created. Arrow navigation still appears on mobile (which is the easiest way to navigate and not fly through walls from one end of a business to the other with one fateful click). #2) Launch...

One of the reasons I made the investment in Matterport was the ability to create streamlined processes for everything, shaving time off conventional “best practices”.

Not having to stitch, process HDR, upload, place panos (which is a pain in the new GSV app!), create links...literally...

Important update about iris360 Pro Nerdvice451 8 10 monthsNerdvice451 (73): It is disappointing for all of us who wanted this type of quality at an affordable price.

The Trusted status is no longer a requirement and you can start offering your services without previous qualifications.

I am not sure if you will need a gmail account for this purpose. It was a requirement in the past...
Getting the best GSV w/ your Matterport BrianM 7 11 monthsMetroplex360 (8620): My tips: #1) When scanning, try to keep very STRAIGHT paths. It makes much more sense for navigation to be done at 90 degree angles -- and even with Matterport tours, this turns out much better than simply scanning haphazardly in order to complete your dollhouse. #2) Disable unnecessary scans. As GSV is a bit more cumbersome to navigate, you are going to want to make your tour a bit more streamlined -- no bonus panos for fun! Try to trim...

Correctly positioning and posing panoramas is the most tedious and difficult aspect of creating a GSV tour and this is all taken care of here! Bravo!
