Welcome to iGUIDE’s Indoor Mapping System.
This system will take your real estate photography to the next level. Creating floor plans and virtual 3D real estate virtual tours has never been easier or faster for real estate photographers.
Let’s start with getting familiar with the 3D virtual Tour Camera, its accessories, and its basic operation.
The carrying case holds the camera itself, the charger for the DSLR battery, and the charger for the main system battery.
When you take a close look at the 3D virtual Tour Camera, you will notice that it is comprised of a system controller, a laser scanner, a battery, and a DSLR with a fisheye lens.
The top of the camera also has a spirit level, so you can level it before you shoot.
You connect to the system using wi-fi from almost any smart device. You can use your phone, a tablet, or even your computer.
Once you’ve connected your device to the system, you can see the data and images gathered in real time.
All the data that’s gathered is stored on a USB drive plugged directly into the system, and not the smart device itself.
You can even switch between devices while shooting a property.
While in mapping mode, data is gathered while you move throughout a property. The raw data will gradually form into a recognizable floor plan.
When shooting panoramas, room data will be gathered alongside fisheye images that will later be turned into a full spherical panorama.
Any room data that’s gathered while shooting a panorama will be automatically aligned to the map data that’s already been gathered.
You can even use the camera in mapping mode and create panoramas at the same time.
When the entire property is mapped, the final step is to edit the data on your home computer and then send the data to Planitar, where it will be drafted and become an iGUIDE.
