Christian Murray's curator insight, April 7, 7:01 AM

The world of 360 is not limited to video and photography  but of  course photogrammetry and  lidar as well. We know of many  photogrammetric applications  using tablet and phones  but  this is the first of the promises of  hybrid lidar in your phone!

Should shake up  a lot of interest as we see  point clouds becoming more popular in all the industries of the world.  This  example does not show articuarly  high res  but of course it is still early days.  if we look at what lidar has done in the last 20 years and the  scale of technology acceleration, i think one could say that within 3-5 years   there will be a dynamic  advance in the use of 3d scan data in everyday lives.

First we had communication networks, like telephones and email. Then we had social networks, like Facebook and LinkedIn. Now we have market networks, like HoneyBook, AngelList, Houzz, DotLoop and Joist.

You can imagine a market network for every industry where professionals are not interchangeable: law, travel, real estate, media production, architecture, investment banking, personal finance, construction, management consulting and more. Each market network will have different attributes that make it work in each vertical, but the principles will remain the same.

In the Social Age, the value of a brand is co-created with the community and, largely, the value is held by the community. It’s no longer broadcast and owned by the organisation. It’s no longer about pushing brand onto people, but instead it’s about adding value to people in meaningful ways.

Viime vuosina käyttökokemus (user experience, UX) on noussut ratkaisevaksi kilpailutekijäksi, joka erottaa verkkopalvelun muista. Valta verkossa on asiakkaalla ja he ovat muuttuneet yhä valikoivemmiksi sen suhteen, millaista kokemusta he vaativat. Verkkopalvelun tulee olla miellyttävä ja helppo käyttää, kaunis, nopea ja funktionaalinen. Hyvä käyttökokemus koukuttaa käyttäjät palaamaan sivustolle ja suosittelemaan sitä verkostoilleen. Se rakentaa positiivista brändimielikuvaa, jonka arvo voi olla mittaamaton.
