Google's Street View is much better now4428

I just notice that google's street view for indoor navigation is much better than before. No distortion of walls during pano transition any more.

Here is an example :




It seems that their software knows well the main planar surfaces in the scene, which enables a comparable navigation experience as in Matterport. I don't know how they get the main surfaces. Manually edited by photographers , or estimated by algorithms?

How do you think ?

All great questions. Sounds like something that I need to ask at the Google Street View Summit 10-11 May 2017 in Tokyo.

Perhaps a a camera was used that captures scan data?

In the mean time, perhaps these Google Street View Pros might comment:

@Metroplex360
@TrustedPhotoDC
@Property3D

Or, perhaps this Developer might have thoughts on this topic:

@JuMP

Best,

Dan

I still think it's not really doing this and that the geometry of the space is lending itself to looking like the transitions are truly 3D. There's really no other explanation for it that I can find.

Moving mouse cursor along the walls, we can see that there exist planar geometries. And the geometries do reflect the variation of room width at different places.

How does the viewer get the geometries ?
