Frequently Asked Questions

What is a Global Workspace 3D virtual tour?
Our virtual tour is a stunning 3D representation of your space. Visitors can navigate and experience your business location as if they were actually there.
Can the images be edited after the scan has been completed?
Due to the way 3D images are rendered, it is not possible with current technology to edit objects out of the completed pictures. If there are any sensitive articles you don’t wish to be present on your virtual tour, then you should remove them before the scanning takes place.
How do I embed my tour on a website?
Embedding works in the exact same way as with a YouTube video. Just copy in the embed code and you’re ready to go.
Can you render outdoor areas?
3D cameras are designed primarily to capture indoor spaces. That said, if it’s a cool, overcast day, it can work, but not on hot and sunny days. We can take a 360-degree picture of your outdoor area, however.
Can you scan my boat/ship?
Yes. For best results, we need a flat and calm day, and the boat to be moored alongside a pontoon.
How do I arrange a 3D virtual scan of my place?
Get in touch with us today and discuss your requirements. Then we’ll book an appointment with you and plan your 3D tour.
How does it work?
Our advanced technology captures every angle of your business location. We then go to work using our powerful software to turn the images into a fully rendered and photo realistic 3D environment.
How long will it take to scan my property?
On average it takes around 30 minutes to an hour to capture an area of 1,000 square feet.
Are there any restrictions on which devices I can view my tour on?
Our 3D tour uses WebGL, which is the modern standard format for this kind of content. It’s compatible with Chrome, Firefox, Safari, and Edge, as well as most popular mobile browsers.
Can I add links to the tours
Absolutely. If, for example, your tour is of a retail space, you can include links to take people to your online store to purchase items they have seen.
Do I need to prepare the space?

You need to make sure that your space is in the best possible condition. Check there’s nothing lying around and any doors to areas that are not going to be included in the scan are closed. It’s also imperative that you have deep cleansed the space as the scans show up every last detail, including dirty windows etc.  We can provide a deep clean service before the scan, just contact us to find out more.
