What is Matterport?
Matterport is a powerful 3D camera that collects accurate visual and spacial data to map entire areas. A matterport 3D space is a complete, three-dimensional representation of a real world location. The space can be navigated on a smart phone, tablet, or desktop computer.
How is a Matterport 3D space different from a traditional virtual tour?
A traditional virtual tour is a gallery of stationary panoramic photos. Traditional photographers use DSLR cameras to capture mutiple photos which are then stitched together to form a panorama.
Our Matterport cameras capture real 3d data in which the result is a “textured mesh.” A textured mesh is a dimensionally accurate, 3D map of a space that is characterized by a set of polygons onto which colored textures are overlaid. The spherical 2D photography that the camera collects is then projected onto the textured mesh to provide photographic visual quality within the 3D space.
The technique of combining 3D and 2D data sets creates a realistic sense of movement as the models are navigated because of the use of the textured mesh during the transitions between spherical photographs.
