Scanning a large outdoor space7603

Hello Everyone,

I want to scan a large outdoor space and it is not on Google Street View. Client would like it published to GSV. I have a Matterport Camera already and not sure if that is the best high quality solution for that. I am looking for either a walking or driving solution to capture the data and then upload it. Any help would be greatly appreciated

Hello,
I see your question is two parts.
1- regarding outdoor work you can use BLK360 from Leica, or yoy have to work with matterport camera at early morning just before and after sunrise and same case at sunset.
Regarding GSV it is an option you can upload into Google from your matterport account.
If the desired location is not on Google Maps you have to add a missing location and verify the ownership.
Then you assign the matterport GSV into the new location.

Appreciate the feedback and have had the opportunity to scan some outdoor spaces in the morning and eve before the sunlight becomes too intense for the Matterport Tour to handle. Also have scanned some 30,000 square foot places.

My original thought was use a 1 click 360 camera to capture the desired area and then use 360tours solution to feature the hotspots on a panoramic map. The problem is this is a development that is massive. Do not know if 1 Matterport Tour can handle all the data. Usually have time to handle all of this research prior, but reaching out here since I’m on a crunch

@3dvrwalkthrough

Assuming that the outdoor spaces are many streets of a massive, multi-family community not presently on Google Maps – Matterport – or Matterport + Leica Geosystems BLK360 – are the wrong tools for this project.

My Four Recommendations (in order)

1. NCTech iSTAR Pulsar – designed for this exact use-case (watch videos above)
2. Insta360 Pro + GPS module – requires some gear configuration
3. CUPIX + Ricoh Theta V or MADV Madventure 360 Camera (aka Xiaomi Mi Sphere)
4. Panoskin Pro + Ricoh Theta V or MADV Madventure 360 Camera (aka Xiaomi Mi Sphere)

Optional Extra: Nadir Tripod Logo Patch (your logo and website)

As a WGAN Standard Member, you get:

FREE! First six months of CUPIX Small Plan + Studio Add On Pack (Publish to GSV)
free use of Panoskin Pro
Free Nadir Logo Patch

Best,

Dan

Have you checked Geoslam. You can make LiDAR survey while walking or Leica pegasus but I do not think this csn serve the walkthrough production.
