@GlennTremain hey Glenn! Yes, I believe when you upload the newest iteration of the 3D tour it will be the one that dominates. Those 360 images will appear ahead of the older files. If the current tour s. Uploader would be able to delete those image files from their local guide account. I think that will offset any confusion as the newer files will take over. Pretty sure bro. All of my Google 3D tours have been through Matterport. Works like a charm!

@GETMYVR thanks but will it replace the outside shot when someone searches for ABC salon? does it replace that outside 360?

pretend the front has the old business showing and they want the remodeled new business to show and if they have to buy a matterport of the inside of the salon they will but it has to erase old.

Thanks for your quick response

@GlennTremain - If the outside of the shop, literally the "street view" is old, uploading a Matterport to Google will have no effect on the "street view". If you include a scan of the outside, such as a sidewalk view, this still will not likely appear to GSV users who simply move down the street.

Trickiest part of GSV shooting is getting your panos, regardless of whether they are Matterport or individual shots such as Theta Z1 or Insta360 cameras, to "connect" with Google's path down the street. And especially challenging (if even possible) is to shoot new panos IN THE STREET to have them added in place of Google's last driving car that passed by years ago. Your question is a good one. I'll look into it.

@GlennTremain it very well could! But there are some caveats in it up to Google ultimately . So if you want the exterior image as the dominant start point then set that as the start in your Matterport tour. I'm doing my best to start the tour in the center of the road, working my way in towards the door and then inside the business. I always pray the sun is not out because I'm using a pro 2. But if you start from the center of the road where the blue line is and work your way in Google says it's supposed to work. And it's actually a hard guarantee to offer anybody yet I think. For me, the most important part is what's inside.

@Home3D All true, You can't augment published material that Google has on maps. But I think when you do a current 3D shoot of the property and you start from the Blue line in the center of the road, It's possible that the Google algorithms could pick that up once you look towards the building. Show you that shot. But it's up to Google right.

all they care about is when you google their business and the 360 that shows up there. thoughts?

@GlennTremain well I can tell you almost 100%, that after you take a very good exterior image of the property or business up close... And upload that to the business on Google maps as a local guide... That could be the image most people will see. In your case, the updated exterior remote or whatever . Google wants extremely accurate upddated information on exterior views. But your client has to remember it's entirely up to the Google algorithm. No amount of money can influence that or technology experience. You just got to work through it. And you always want to allow 14 to 30 days for everything to reconcile.

@GETMYVR @HOME3D great input from both of you. I'll give them an assurance but not a guarantee and advise them of all the things that affect it but them show them the benefits of having a 3D walkthrough (with mattertags, pdfs,video, etc.). Thanks again

@GlennTremain To do what your client wants you need to drive through the part of the street where your client is located, record it as a 360 video with a location track data and then publish it through a specific camera software or Google Street View Studio. It will create a new blue line. It will supersede Google capture and become a default one shown to any map user only if it is a better quality as the current default blue line.

If their street view is 1-3 years old I am afraid you need a really great camera like Mosaic X.

I do not know its price in USD but in AUD its close to $55000. You can probably rent it for a day for under $400 but you will still need software to process it and publish which won't be free. I believe Mosaic brand using Mistica VR for stitching video from each of the camera lens. I do not know what software they have for publishing it to Maps though.

If their capture 3-7 years old you may have success doing it with a Pilot Era but there is still no guarantee that Google will consider it the better quality than theirs and show it by default. And even if they do their car will go after your publishing and yours will be overwritten as a default one.


At least with a Pilot Era it is cheap and software is already in the camera.
