NBR reported on Monday that the the tool was launched internationally in 2010 and has been in New Zealand since 2012. Takapuna-based company Property 3D is one of a handful of Kiwi start-ups carrying out the work locally.
Its co-founder and photographer, Guatam Atmakuri, told the NBR that the service is particularly appealing to bars, restaurants, hotels, venues and schools, but we think Google Business View could have applications for destination-style retail outlets as well.
A list of “trusted Google-certified” photographers or agencies able to shoot for Google Business View can be found online here. The above image has been taken from Johnston Photography’s Business View virtual tour of Bedpost Wellington.
