*because the Matterport Pro 3D Camera captures three-dimensional data, you may discover a large gap in a wall between two rooms of a historic building. That's the place to look for hidden treasure!  We Get Around Chief Photographer Dan Smigrod has "discovered" a space pre-built for a potential elevator in a mansion and storage closets. No treasure (yet).

**The Matterport camera captures two (2D) and three-dimensional (3D) data. That data is sent to the Matterport Cloud for processing. That processing results in a 3D model (digital object) hosted on the Matterport server. The Matterport 3D Showcase is the way to view that 3D model in a web browser using WebGL. The Matterport Workshop Player is the way to view and interact with that 3D model using the Unity application.
