More about Marco and the technology used to create this Virtual Tour:
The Matterport camera creates a complete 3D digital representation of a real-world interior space, providing the ability to explore it as if being there in person. Because it can be viewed on nearly any device, interacting with this data is very easy.
The camera’s various lenses record multiple HDR images, which are then stitched together into a final, virtual model, and can be toured on any computer or mobile device as a Floor plan, Dollhouse, or as a 3D Tour from a preassigned starting location.
