Cube Cities @ MIPIM 2017

We attended the 2017 MIPIM property show in Cannes last week to see what was new in the world of real estate development and marketing technology. We were pleased to see our customers Ivanhoé Cambridge and Altus Group in attendance at this premier event for large and small participants in almost every sector of the real estate industry. Interior visualization company Matterport was also at the show along with many other new technology firms focused on space visualization and geomatics. MIPIM will organize a technology focused event, Proptech in New York on October 11th this year which we look forward to attending.

Of special note at MIPIM were the major installations of city models from local city governments across the world, especially the exhibits put on by the City of London, Paris, Moscow, Istanbul and Dubai. The show is primarily an investment-oriented event where institutional funds from around the globe can come together to get a sense of the hottest up and coming projects to invest capital.

Matterport Positioning Service from Cube Cities

Cube Cities has developed an innovative process of geolocating Matterport-captured space within a building. Using our coordinate-based drawing system, we can highlight exactly where a Matterport space is located in a property. The result is improved spatial awareness of where space is located on a floor or multiple floors, how the space is oriented and its relation to neighbouring properties. 

Additionally, the service allows a Matterport user's collection of VR spaces to be visualized across a skyline.

Cube Cities provides this process as a low cost service to make it easy for Matterport users to showcase their spaces in any property in the world using our floor-level 3D building technology. Contact us for pricing.

Matterport Virtual Tours Inside Cube Cities

Matterport demo in Chicago
Have a Matterport virtual tour of an office space to share? Here's an example of how Cube Cities can precisely geolocate the Matterport tour on a building floor and show the space in our 3D city environment using Cesium. This helps communicate exactly where office or retail space is located in a building, how the space is demised and where the view looks out onto.
