This page shows you how our Matterport virtual tour service works, along with its features and benefits. If you want information on virtual tours specific to your particular industry then navigate the sectors in the main menu, otherwise please scroll down for further information on Matterport virtual tours / “digital twins”.
Walk through the Matterport virtual tour like you would on Google Street View. Click on the circles on the floor to go to a specific spot and drag the mouse to look around. Use the icons on the bottom left to change your view from walkthrough, 3D view and floor plan view and go to areas of interest instantly using the thumbnails across the bottom. Click on the blue pins (called “Mattertags”) to view information, links and videos.
It all comes down to user experience, and convenience. If (for whatever reason) a potential customer or client cannot visit a space in person or doesn’t have time to travel, a Matterport virtual tour is the next best thing to physically being there – and instantaneously too.
Matterport virtual tours are also a lot of fun to navigate and so the user is left with a lasting positive impression of the experience. It’s not just for marketing purposes either (selling property, advertising your hotel etc.), a “digital twin” of your space can be used as a tool for surveying, collaborating and informing. Digital twins enable industries such as real estate, hospitality, construction, and insurance to simplify how they work and connect with customers and vendors.
An immersive walkthrough virtual tour, allowing anyone to walk through the digital twin and look around as though they’re really there.
Navigate using the mouse or touch clicking on where you want to move to, much like Google Street View virtual tours but because the tour is a 3D model the end user experience is so much smoother and your clients will love it.
Use the thumbnails at the bottom to be transported instantly to key areas and the icons on the bottom left to change your view.
Mattertags are 3d pins which can be attached to any object or surface within the virtual tour to add extra information in the form of text, hyperlinks, images and even embedded video from YouTube or Vimeo.
You can colour code them, change their length and size. Use text to give more information and highlight key areas, use photos to offer higher levels of detail (great for art galleries), use hyperlinks for downloadable PDFS (great for adding specification sheets and instruction manuals) and introduce users to the tour using embedded videos.
If you’re a quantity surveyor needing detailed measurements (for flooring, ceiling or wall installations or heat loss surveys), a facilities management professional, building manager or designer you’ll love this handy feature.
You can use the measurement tool to find the dimensions of rooms, walls, windows and objects within rooms.
Measurements can be taken in imperial or metric units and shared with colleagues and stake holders.
The “dolls house view” allows you to see the entire 3D model, rotate it around using the mouse (or finger gestures on mobile devices) and then back into the immersive inside view with a single click.
Users tend to get lost pretty easily viewing Google Street View virtual tours but with the dolls house view you can get an instant appreciation of the layout of the entire space.
You can also select to view a single floor at a time if the upper floors are blocking the view of the floors below.
Your clients (or potential buyers / tenants for commercial and residential property) will understand the layout at a glance with the top-down floor plan view.
The floor plan view of a 3D Matterport virtual tour is a true top down view of the 3D model including textures, with the ability select floors to gain a better understanding of the space you are exploring.
Clicking anywhere on the floor plan view teleports the user instantly back into the inside view.
Every Matterport 3D virtual tour we produce comes with high quality, high resolution HDR wide angle photography as standard with no need for a separate photoshoot.
Professional high quality schematic floor plans provided in multiple file formats for print and the web without the need for additional site visits. These can be uploaded to your chosen property portal and included in your print ready PDF commercial property brochures.
