Hi All,

The WGAN Forum Question of the Day for Friday, 28 September 2018) is:

Have you published all the commercial spaces that you have scanned to Google Street View before Matterport starts charging on Monday, 1 October 2018?

I'm having an upload-a-thon this weekend. I still think this is one of the lousiest moves that they've made (among many worthy candidates for that title).

Happy uploading!

Ha! I just got done uploading a ton myself. I could imagine I am about to be GSV Level a million

Hi All,

Since you can Publish to Google Street View and Un-Publish, I could imagine that Matterport would not charge you the second time that you publish the same model to Google Street View.

For example, there are some Clients that I have not reached out to (yet) to say, would you like the tour published to Google Street View (and charge more $$$). So, I want to published them (and, if necessary, un-publish them and not get charged for re-publishing. Clear as mud?

I could also imagine sharing with a client the published to Google Street View version and ask if they would like it to remain live for $$$$ per month (or year) and if not, un-publish.

Avoid getting dinged by publishing Matterport Spaces to Google Street View before 1 October 2018 (when Matterport begins charging for publishing to Google Street View.

Best,

Dan

@DanSmigrod - I believe you are correct here.

Just for the record, GSV publishing will be $14.99 - same as Schematic Floorplans.

Screen Grab: Email that I received from Google after Matterport to Google Street View upload-a-thon publishing over the weekend.

@Metroplex360

Thanks!

@Chemistrydoc

How did your upload-a-thon to Google Street View go this weekend?

I believe I went to Local Guide Level 7 from Local Guide Level 5 as a result of the additional Matterport to Google Street View publishing (360ยบ content). Not sure what level 7 (or level 5) gets me other than a badge, but needed to upload this content anyway so that I would not get dinged in the future.

Best,

Dan

We always knew you were a rock star.......

Seriously, though, I pressed the upload button several times on Sunday. Hope that they don't ding my account since the emails notifying me of the jobs processing to GSV didn't start arriving until today.

I would like to think that the billing is based on the date transmitted: not the date that you received email confirmations.

Best,

Dan
