Matterport Enhances Immersive 3D Media Platform with Betas for Google Street View Publishing and Faster Space Capture
Google Street View Publishing and Faster Space Capture Increase ROI for Matterport Customers Across Multiple Industries SUNNYVALE, Calif., Jan. 10, 2018 -- Matterport, an immersive 3D media technology company, today announced open betas for publishing to Google Street View and new camera firmware enabling faster space capture. These two significant initiatives are expected to create more business opportunities for Matterport's thousands of customers across numerous industries, including restaurants, retail, travel and hospitality, real estate, and architecture, construction and engineering. Google Street View Publishing With Matterport's rollout of Google Street View publishing capabilities, Matterport users will be able to quickly create and publish a Google Street View experience from any Matterport 3D Space with the click of a button. Matterport 3D Spaces can now be exported to show up on Google Maps, Google Earth, and the mobile Street View application as fully linked panoramic photo tours, driving additional traffic to businesses' websites. Clients get the best of both worlds, leveraging the highly immersive Matterport 3D experience of a company's space on their website and publishing a 360 tour on Street View. "Google Street View publishing and faster space capture are two of the many initiatives that greatly increase the value of Matterport for camera operators, as well as businesses that want to use Google to drive people to their websites," said Bill Brown, Matterport CEO. "Matterport is the solution of choice for all types of businesses because our automation makes it easy for anyone to quickly capture a space and get a high-quality 3D environment. Now this content can be experienced as a Matterport immersive 3D environment on a business' website and can also be used to published as a Google Street View experience on Google Maps, Google Earth, or mobile Street View." Publishing a Google Street View experience from a Matterport 3D Space only takes a few minutes and enables Matterport Service Providers to expand their services by providing superior walkthroughs for clients and prospective customers. Google Street View photographers can rely on Matterport for a faster and easier publishing process. Since creation of a 3D space is automated, there is no need to manually stitch 360 panoramas, place and orient each of them on a map, and manually link the tours together. Photographers now only need a Matterport camera to get the job done, as opposed to using 360 and DSLR cameras, which often require additional equipment and software. Faster Space Capture to Increase ROI for Camera Owners In addition to expanding its distribution capabilities, Matterport has dramatically shortened the already brief onsite time it takes to capture a Matterport 3D Space, increasing the ROI for customers by reducing the labor cost for content creation. This latest camera firmware update speeds up the camera rotation, enabling customers to scan spaces in a fraction of the time. The speed increase comes from a free firmware update, requires no additional equipment, and will work for all Pro2 and Pro Matterport cameras. The quality of 2D imagery and 3D data will remain unchanged. Check out this video to see just how much faster the Matterport camera can scan. As the only automated all-in-one solution, Matterport empowers users to generate cutting-edge 3D experiences, high-resolution 2D photography, and a wide range of other shareable assets that can be used to differentiate businesses in the market and improve customer experiences.

CoreLogic Expands Location-Based Intelligence to Include Building Footprint Data
  June 27, 2016, Irvine, Calif. – CoreLogic®, a leading global property information, analytics and data-enabled services provider, announced today the expansion of its location-based intelligence data with the addition of structure footprint information to its other parcel and property characteristics data offerings. CoreLogic Structure Footprint enables accurate roof-top geocoding and identifies the location and outline of relevant structures on a parcel, including all known sub-addresses, to provide a more granular and precise property description. CoreLogic residential and commercial structure footprint data covers more than 35 million rural and urban parcels throughout the U.S, including two-thirds of the largest 50 metro areas. When combined with other CoreLogic proprietary property data, including business financial health, natural hazard risks, occupancy information and building characteristics, the added structure footprint data provides a more complete picture of a property than was previously available. Accurate location data is a critically important factor for planning and operations in oil and gas, insurance, geo-commerce, and other industries that need to understand what type of structures and building characteristics are associated with property addresses. The addition of structure footprint data complements the existing CoreLogic property characteristic data which details attributes in 150 distinct categories that provide location intelligence on everything from zoning and land use to details about roof type and number of bedrooms. "The addition of this property data layer which identifies individual structures within a single parcel can improve efficiencies and risk segmentation for everything from geo-commerce to insurance," said Steve Brewer, senior vice president of Insurance and Spatial Solutions at CoreLogic. "It's exciting to see this level of granularity added to location intelligence that was previously not available—granularity that can be used in a variety of decision-making situations including natural hazard risk assessment, marketing, asset management and claims processing."

Maponics and Realtors Property Resource Partnership Provides Walkability Rankings to Over 1 Million NAR REALTOR® Members
White River Junction, Vermont (January 13, 2014) -- Maponics, a leading provider of geospatial data, announced today that Realtors Property Resource (RPR), the National Association of REALTORS® online real estate database, is licensing Maponics Context Walkability™. Context Walkability is the most comprehensive and customizable walk rating solution on the market. The product provides a walkability index for US city neighborhoods as well as school attendance zones, subdivisions and other areas. The walkability rating represents accessibility by walking to points of interest such as coffee shops, parks and schools. "We're delighted to provide Walkability rankings to a wide array of real estate professionals through RPR," said Mark Friend, Vice President of Sales and Business Development at Maponics. "Studies are finding that housing in pedestrian-friendly areas has higher property values and is more desirable for home buyers and renters. This is important information for the real estate market, for obvious reasons." RPR gathers extensive national, regional and local data that enables Realtors and other members to access data and analytics on properties and market trends. RPR members include Realtors, residential and commercial broker/agents, appraisers, associations and MLSs. Walkability data is increasingly relevant to home buyers. According to the National Association of Realtors 2013 Community Preference Survey, 60% of survey participants prefer a neighborhood with a mix of houses, stores and other businesses that are within easy walking distance of one another. Over half, 55%, would be willing to trade a home with a larger yard for a smaller home within walking distance of schools, stores and restaurants. "RPR's mission is to bring the highest value data sets to NAR's 1 million+ REALTOR® members across the country. With neighborhood and community walkability on the minds of so many consumers, it's vital that our agents and brokers have reliable, comprehensive information to share with their clients and customers," says Dale Ross, CEO of Realtors Property Resource. "The addition of this type of high-demand information to RPR's already robust tools, features and reports will assist in positioning REALTORS® as the local market expert in their communities." Context Walkability ratings range from 0.0 to 5.0 and include 3 scores: Amenity points of interest, including schools, shopping centers and more; Leisure points of interest, such as coffee shops and pizza places; and Overall, a combination of Amenity and Leisure. In addition to points of interest, Walkability ratings take into account street types, speed limits and other features that Walk Score® does not consider (see the infographic comparing Context Walkability to Walk Score®). RPR has been a Maponics customer since 2010. They also license Maponics School Boundaries and ZIP Code Boundaries. About Realtors Property Resource Realtors Property Resource® (RPR®), a wholly owned subsidiary of the National Association of REALTORS®, is an exclusive online real estate database aggregating information on over 166 million U.S. properties.
