Say Hello to Visual Alignment (similar to April Tags)

Visual Alignment (similar to April Tags) is a feature that makes it easier for you to scan places with empty or repetitive architecture. Examples of this include architecture, engineering, and construction spaces, empty convention centers or factories, ballrooms, commercial real estate spaces without furniture, etc. Previously these places were very difficult to capture — the lack of 3D data or the fact that a new scan was too similar to a previous scan often led to misalignments and alignment errors. With Visual Alignment, you will be able to quickly and more easily capture these spaces in immersive 3D.

How it works:

To use Visual Alignment, you will need to print out the set of alignment markers provided on our Support site here. Then, you can tape them to key areas at your scan location. The Matterport Capture App will recognize these markers when they are scanned and use their placement to assist with alignment and eliminate alignment errors.

Update your Capture app today to take advantage of Visual Alignment.
