Help please ...

I use the free map cloud-hosted solution, Mapbox.com

I would like to add geo-tagged "Markers" (see the red push-pins in the screen grab) that point to our portfolio of Matterport 3D Showcases.

In the "Marker" call-out, [see screen grab attached], what html code do I add to the "Add A Description" box so that it automatically generates a thumb-nail of the 3D Showcase? Ideally, then clicking on the thumbnail would launch the 3D Showcase.

Even better might be changing the "Marker" to the 3D Showcase thumbnail, if that is possible.

Seems like solving this puzzle would create a great, free portfolio visual display tool for all of us for our own websites.

Thanks,

Dan

Unlike other embeddable services like YouTube/Vimeo/Instagram, Matterport has yet to publish any sort of API documentation. Without this info, I don't know of any programmatic way to retrieve the image for a specific showcase.

If you wanted to do things manually, you could consider downloading each model image (from MP and publicly host it somewhere that you control) and then add a link to that image into your description field.

I keep hoping that MP will surprise us with something like how YouTube does it:

http://img.youtube.com/vi/<insert-youtube-video-id-here>/default.jpg

If they did this...what you want to do would be a breeze.

A guy can dream, right?

I know it doesn't address the question directly but....

Anyone who wants to share or look up models by location is welcome to use real3Destates.com for free. All you have to do is send me the address and matterport link and ill put it up there.

@alx3D I've posted to your site. That's great. What I would like to create is a map that has our portfolio of 3D Showcase tours.

@rpetersn What if I did a manual screen grab like this and then posted to our website as an unlinked image?

For example, this image is:
