I ran across an office that is using Google street view to do virtual tours. I have not ran across this before but when started researching it, it looks like Google is doing 3D tours too.

They don't have pricing and it looks like the virtual tour will be available in 1 - 2 weeks from the day it is shot. They do blur out the faces of folks that are captured in the pictures.

Yeah I've seen that. It links up the street view with the inside view. You can go from the street to inside, very nice.

It's nice but if you are using for real estate purposes, you don't get the doll house view which everyone goes crazy for because you can see the exact layout of the home. Google has its uses, just depends on the market you are after.

@immersiveprop I am a google trusted photographer too. They are not 3D tours it is just 360 panorama photos shot with DSLR cameras.
BTW according to google's guidelines you are not allowed to shoot and publish realestate properties or model houses which might become a residence at some point.

Here at Property3D we are a Google Trusted Agency and the reason why we purchased the Matterport Camera is to do Real Estate as this is against Google rules.
Google Business Views are a lot more complicated and you have to jump through a lot more hoops put in place by Google. The Google Business View imagery is public and so that is the main benefit of Matterport - the client can choose to make it public or hold it privately. The imagery needed for Google Business Views is a much higher quality (due to being shot on a DSLR) and you are able to use the panoramic imagery in other software to create much more complicated tours (ie walkinto). The cost to do Google panoramic images is a lot higher than what we are charging to use the Matterport camera as they are much more labor intensive. Each different tool has a different place in the marketplace. In some cases we find that both can be used for different purposes for one client.

Has someone already tried to create a Google Tour out of the Matterport data?
