Combining scans from the same location in order to remove "people" passing leonherbert 2 25 daysJavieB (19): @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 30 daysGlennTremain (1501): 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.

Issues with Google Street View leonherbert 12 2 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 2 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 2 monthsChemistrydoc (601): 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.

Question of the Day: Why not offer Google Street View for business too? DanSmigrod 2 2 monthsRichierichks (634): That is what I have been focusing my business on.

What's the Better Tour Platform for Large Exterior Space? Chemistrydoc 6 4 monthsChemistrydoc (601): @Panoskin I have a set up for DSLR (Canon 60D / Sigma 8mm / 3D Lantern Firmware). However, at $1 per pano (or my time) to stitch, this would be prohibitive. Thanks for your help - for smaller tours (this one could be as large as 50,000 sq ft), I will undoubtedly use the DSLR method for the superior photo quality. Keith

Peek into the GSV conference with this link [virtual tour] scott_cupix 6 5 monthsscott_cupix (220): @Metroplex360 likewise. It was a treat to be invited and to see people I've only interacted with online. But to be honest, the web meetings I've had with people across the globe have got me numb to 1st time human interaction.

Tips for Publishing to Google Street View? DanSmigrod 5 8 monthsVTLV (1303): Be patient!!!! It takes a couple hours to get all the scans on there. It could take up to a week for Google to have it all straight after you update each scan point. Download Google Street View App and update your linking next time you're sitting on the John.
I published to GSV!!! grmngrl 18 9 monthsMetroplex360 (8536): The delay is imposed by Google, not Matterport. Matterport publishes the panos very fast. The panos contain metadata about their positioning (Geocoords, altitude, pose (rotation), and connections). After posting, it enters Google's queue that creates the connections -- which is what takes so long. There's another magical Google fairy that goes around and connects tours to the street if a panorama is close enough. I've heard that it's...
How to hide a scan in Google Street View? Queen_City_3D 17 9 monthsRichierichks (634): @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 9 monthsRichierichks (634): 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 9 monthsMetroplex360 (8536): 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...
Let's Add 360 Views to Street View! Metroplex360 10 9 monthsCharetteImaging (25): GoThru has been a savior for me, especially when it comes to “fixing” the extra connections between panos after uploading from MP to GSV. WELL worth the $2 per tour!
[Newsletter] Google Street View Public Beta Metroplex360 6 9 monthsCharetteImaging (25): I’m inclined to agree. 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”. Time is money, the less time I spend on non value added activities, the more time I can devote to revenue generating activities. Not having to stitch, process HDR, upload, place panos (which is a pain in the new GSV app!), create links...literally...

The Trusted status is no longer a requirement and you can start offering your services without previous qualifications. If you are going to use your own 360 camera or stitched images, you will have to use one of the approved platforms like Panoskin or Gothru, and if you are using Matterport GSV service, you can do it automatically. I am not sure if you will need a gmail account for this purpose. It was a requirement in the past...

Any Matterport predictions for 2018? DanSmigrod 8 11 monthsBale100 (175): One of the biggest challenges is scanning exteriors that form part of 3D tours and walkthroughs - not independent / underlying 360 views. As we are aware, Matterport recently signalled a potential partnership with Leica re. the Leica BLK 360 in 2018. Other than a NDA, commercial etiquette and patents, what is preventing Matterport from developing an upgraded Pro 3 3D Laser Scanner (develop or cross licence components) that can work...

Matterport versus Google Street View DanSmigrod 4 11 monthsArtisticConcepts (586): Hey guys, I see GSV as a great ice breaker for smaller businesses. Especially boutique shops close together in a downtown setting. Being able to say “Google Street View, but inside your store” and the person knows instantly what you mean is a much smoother inroad than just walking in and saying “Yo! Want me to scan your place and make you a Matterport 3D Space?” (a la Rocky Balboa). I really think GSV is going to help us break down...

Google Tango is dead... Good thing or bad? Queen_City_3D 6 11 monthsMetroplex360 (8536): @ron0987 I'd love to see the demo. This makes me think of the Cupix platform, which I am extremely excited about. Cupix uses photogrammetry to create a 3D environment and automatically link panos together into a tour. Without 3D sensors, this is the only way. I could imagine using video to shoot a walkthrough and software taking individual frames to generate a very accurate 3D model using photogrammetry.
