The company automates film and photos in a short amount of time, allowing anyone who wants professional photographs to access their images within 24 hours. Following this announcement, they will now also provide Matterport technology as a service, allowing access to 3D and VR tours, floor plans, 2D high-res images and dollhouse view functions.

The company also has the world’s largest library of 3D space data, consisting of over 1 million 3D models of real-world spaces. The volume of data Matterportaggregates is fuelling its use of deep learning to create the next generation of AI-based computer vision technologies for the digital reconstruction and detailed understanding of spaces.
