Need a GSV Facts Q&A Page

We will be asking a bundle of questions going forward. Other than the 'when' (which is clearly a matter of 2 orgs collaborating on development and trials) we have other questions.

Q1 When

Q2. One of the announcements made mention of limitations fo certian sectors. How will we identify business sectors to 'allow' our Matterport Models to be posted on GSV. Clearly excluding residential and limited to retail / commercial, public spaces?

Let me have your brief questions and I will add them.

Update 11 May 2017

Q3. Given that 'ordering' is required to publish within 24 hours. Is a charge / cost associated with publishing? How much will that be?

Q4 How will MSPs be able to manipulate Map Pin placement if orders are placed via Matterport? Rationale is key. Often Malls and Large Off Street strip malls have a single Google street address. Pin placement will be critical for multiple retails / restaurants at same address to prevent clutter / pin obscurity.
