Residential Construction Documentation lmrich73120 6 4 monthsAlex_iGuide (298): From the iGUIDE FAQ: Do I have to host my iGUIDE in the iGUIDE Cloud or can I download it? Initially iGUIDE is published in the iGUIDE Cloud where it can be configured and downloaded as a zip file for offline viewing or self-hosting. Check this sample iGUIDE Report for offline download link.

Is this a VR? Alex_iGuide 1 6 monthsAlex_iGuide (298): This KS project sets out to test if we live in a simulation: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/simulation/do-we-live-in-a-virtual-reality If we do, who will care about a VR headset - your eyes and ears provide a much more hi-def experience. Computers can be used for augmenting that experience and not just replicating it - to do things we cannot do in real life, like teleportation, such as used in iGUIDE navigation or Google Maps and...

Two homes in 56 minutes douglogan 12 10 monthsMetroplex360 (8536): @douglogan +1 for having the basement pano as an option :) Yes, you can disable views with Matterport -- as many as you would like. I believe that most of us like to allow freedom of exploration -- if someone wants to see the utility room, they can, etc. But! I agree about closets! Large master bedroom closets are wonderful to show - but most often they are crammed with stuff! I'll still scan them, but disable the scans. That way the...
iGuide Not Available in My Area Brian360 5 10 monthsBrian360 (4): Tour Factory is actually hitting iGuide pretty hard. Its advertised on their home page banner and our local TF "franchise" is now offering it alongside MP but at a slightly lower price point than MP.
Some recent iGUIDE samples Chris_iGuide 9 10 monthsMetroplex360 (8536): This would look even cooler as a 3D tour powered by iGuide seeing how there are so many linearly captured panos -- :) C'mon guys :) You have EVERYTHING you need to put your AWESOME system into a 3D Environment as an optional view mode :) You won't be copying :) You'll be the first to put out a 2.5D Tour! :)
Matterport follows iGuide®, again Alex_iGuide 11 10 monthsRichierichks (634): @Metroplex360 Hilarious! I had no idea Google had so many funny videos out there!
Fast scan + iGuide HarlanHambright 5 10 monthsMetroplex360 (8536): It is a game changer. No loss in quality. I remarked on WGA several weeks ago that Matterport was going to announce something that would turn scanning completely upside down. Matterport are on a roll and there's still more to come. 1. Google Street View VR-Ready integration (contingent on Google launching this) 2. New Features in Workshop 3. RoOomie Partnership 4. Use of Computer Learning in the platform (re: Matt Bell's project that...
Large -- really large space sbl110 14 1 yearsbl110 (208): Hi Everyone, Just thought I'd share a scan that my son found [...]. It's supposed to be 200K sq. ft. As you walk through it, either they deleted a great number of scans, or did just the bare minimum to create the dollhouse. At any rate, it's very large indeed. Sorry, I don't have any details about who did it, where it's located, etc. It's obviously a distribution center. Scott http://my.matterport.com/show/?m=bXbJmbZnibH
iGUIDE to Google Street View examples Chris_iGuide 6 1 yearMetroplex360 (8536): I think that automatically posting to GSV via iGuide is an EXCELLENT tool. The fact that iGuide offers a simple and accurate way to do this is superb. 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! I recommend that iGuide Operators consider using GoThru or PanoSkin in order to import their tours and refine if and where needed. I have...

Matterport versus iGuide: how to Compete? DanSmigrod 10 1 yearAlex_iGuide (298): Of course it does, otherwise it would not be seeing increasing adoption at the rate it does for almost a year and half now since Alberta Residential Measurement Standard (RMS) was introduced. Alberta RMS is about accuracy and repeatability in measuring and reporting square footage and rules that must be followed by whoever is measuring - agents, appraisers, surveying companies or iGuide Operators. RMS was introduced to improve communication...

Matterport bought iGuide google ad PetraSoderling 20 1 yearViewing (583): Google were fined £2bn today for messing with search results. Let's not hold them or their rules up as beacons of ethics. If you pay them enough or are one of their pet projects you will rank where you like for whatever key terms you like. @Kevin_iGuide Hats off for not getting walked all over.

Google Street View: Threat or Opportunity? DanSmigrod 6 2 yearsDanSmigrod (16738): Your company is perfectly positioned to take advantage of the Matterport announcement at the Google Street View Summit. Hopefully, you will be able to shoot once and publish twice. Dan
iGuide at Google Street View Summit Alex_iGuide 6 2 yearsAlex_iGuide (298): See you there Dan, that will be fun! The morning drink at 10am in Google agenda had me puzzled. May make it easier to present, though.

We are excited to ​launch iGUIDE VR! Chris_iGuide 3 2 yearsAlex_iGuide (298): We also support older phones that have WebVR working, not only Daydream phones. The experience is smoother on more powerful phones, obviously.
How to Embed an iGuide 3D Tour in the Forum DanSmigrod 11 2 yearsfrstbubble (583): @DanSmigrod that was just from another post about a reply from Matterport saying that some options may be available in that time frame. I think it came from a news letter.

FREE Webinar on Floor Plan measures PetraSoderling 7 2 yearsPetraSoderling (682): Thanks @DannyBasting I'll check it out. I also attended a Immoviewer/KoaWare webinar yesterday and they used something called QlickMeeting. It was pretty nice as well, no need to download separate clients and attendees remained anonymous which I think people will appreciate. But there were some technical challenges, as I suppose every platform has. (content of that webinar was 100% great though!)
iGuide: Real-world time to capture a home Alex_iGuide 3 2 yearsAlex_iGuide (298): While iGuide technology has automatic mapping mode where the space map is built as you walk through space, it is not the only way to map. iGuide does not force scan alignment to be maintained onsite like Matterport. With iGuide, you can scan two adjacent rooms and align them manually, either onsite or later at home. The two rooms may have very little overlap in terms of common points - mostly at the door and the overlap percentage may be as low...

iGuide Camera: Top 5 underrated features Chris_iGuide 5 2 yearsMetroplex360 (8536): @Alex_iGuide I'm sorry for my incorrect terminology. I don't tend to think or work with 3D and had misappropriated '3D'. I usually think of the Z axis as being 3D... and when -I- think of the Z axis, I'm thinking that a panorama is X & Y and that the distance into the photograph (that doesn't really exist) is Z. The 2D Lidar scanner is really scanning what I perceive to be the X and Z axises. It lacks the Y axis. I think it's quite...
Virtual Tour versus Video Kevin_iGuide 19 2 yearsKevin_iGuide (139): I believe the last 2 posts speak directly to the challenges faced among virtual tour providers. Are we marketing our services to agents or home buyers? The agents are our paying clients but should we be promoting the services agents (think they) want or the service that we know buyers want. I refer to the annual study published by the National Association of Realtors - Profile of Home Buyers and Sellers. For a number of years, the features...
How long is iGuide post processing time? Chris_iGuide 1 2 yearsChris_iGuide (187): I was recently asked how long it takes to process the data from the iGuide camera system before submitting it. Here is a short video that demonstrates the process from start to finish: https://youtu.be/6RC5HEqRQAo The answer will vary from house to house but in this case the answer is 2 minutes and 45 seconds.

Photographer Researching 3D Tour Solutions? DanSmigrod 6 2 yearsblafarm (7): I am admittedly an outsider here and I have not yet even incorporated this product category into my offerings -- so my observations and opinions are nothing more than that of a novice. However, this development comes as no surprise to me. Matterport's business plan seems focused on putting as many Matterport cameras, into as many hands as possible (regardless of whose hands they are), so that they can achieve a critical mass of market...

iGuide As A Platform - Thoughts RGO 7 2 yearsDanSmigrod (16738): @RGO The short answer is all or nothing ... The iGuide System is a platform that includes: ✓ hardware ✓ software ✓ processing ✓ hosting For the iGuide magic to work, all the pieces need to work together. Just because you have four tires and a steering wheel, doesn't mean to you can drive ... I hear your concern – "but I already own a 3D Camera and a DSLR camera" ... Rather than looking at this as an expense, decide if...
Edit a 360° panorama in Photoshop (iGuide) Chris_iGuide 5 2 yearsChris_iGuide (187): @Baxter Yes, you can edit the whole thing as one image if you like. However, editing the fisheye images fits better into my workflow. https://forum.we-get-around.com/cached/a92fde413ee727ee6f6e8870d9f7c825.jpg

Would be interested in your retouch process and I think I am sold on MP. I agree that it is not photography and therefore we can't stop those with $$$ that get into this as a business. I have desided to use Insidemaps as a low cost solution for realtors on the cheap and will mark up $$ MP service just because there is a huge difference between them. The fact that it uses a iPhone is...

iGuide to Google Street View Maps Helen 7 2 yearsKevin_iGuide (139): Hi kevshed, We began limited testing the Streetview program mid-November with a couple dozen of our iGuide Pro's and response has been incredible to @Metroplex360 's innovation. Local businesses see the cost as a no-brainer too; especially the ones paying for google and facebook ads. Given the holiday decorations in December a number of Pro's are booking up their slow periods in January and February with Business Tours. Here is a demonstration...

Matterport versus iGuide (Which and Why) DanSmigrod 5 3 yearsDoyleRealtor (511): I've talked to many folks at Matterport, the owner of Toursler, and just recently Kevin with iGuide. All 3 companies have solid products, and are continuing to innovate in a new market category for real estate which is very exciting. Ultimately it comes down to 1) availability in your market place, and 2) whether or not the end user wants to do the scanning themselves or higher it out to a professional. From what I've seen with Toursler &...
