Matterport Marketing Content Amir Frank on Matterport Scanning of Repetitive Spaces ...

From the Matterport YouTube Channel:

Learn how to properly scan repetitive spaces using Matterport. Scanning spaces with redundant and repetitive architecture can often cause misalignment issues.

Find out how to avoid these misalignments by increasing scan density, using AprilTags and/or placing physical 3D objects in the environment to assist with alignment.

When we have large repetitive spaces we use the BLK360 and it's a piece of cake. The BLK works really well on these even without using AprilTags. A bit longer per scan of course but the area of coverage is much larger and you don't have the dreaded "loss of alignment" issues. I don't think I've had one yet that tried to align anywhere except where the scan was done. With Matterports on these, trying numerous "methods", it's still come up a challenge too often. If Matterport only? - Be glad AprilTags are free to print and get some in my opinion. Especially since large repetitive spaces are often floor to ceiling glass and columns, looking to show views out windows, and too large to capture without sun streaming in some of the windows before you can finish....

Matterport updated this Support Page on 1 June 2021 for large, open, empty and repetitive spaces:


Looks like Matterport has changed the name of AprilTags to Alignment Markers for Assisted Alignment.
