Matterport is a silicon valley technology company that makes it easy for anyone to create immersive cloud-based 3D models of real-world spaces that can be experienced, changed, and shared online.


Industries Served

Real Estate, Home improvement, Furnishings & Decor, Property Insurance, Real Estate Management, Construction Management, Hotels & Vacation Rentals, Retail Space Planning, Forensics, Animation, Public & Private Security and many others. 






The Matterport 3D System uses a patented camera, controlled through the user’s Apple iPad, to capture 3D and 2D images of an interior space. The camera rotates on a tripod that the user places around a room to capture every aspect of the space. Matterport’s proprietary technology then stitches together the data to create one complete 3D mesh with images overlaid onto all surfaces.  These models are then ready for users to walk through the interior, view as a doll-house, or see a floorplan through Matterport’s immersive online interface. The models also include complete linear and area measurement data. The resulting model can be viewed, modified, annotated, and shared using any computer or the Apple iPad.

Matterport’s unique ecosystem gives people the freedom to experience any place, at any time. Our end-to-end immersive media platform is a quick, easy and affordable way to capture and explore real world spaces in immersive and photo-realistic 3D and VR.
