Platform creates accurate 3D model of homes using photos
We’re constantly looking for innovative ways to improve the Springwise experience, and so we’re now introducing BeeLine Reader, a new technology that helps you read more quickly and efficiently.

One of the first steps in any exterior home renovation is to take accurate measurements. The next step is often to create a drawing of the property. A California startup has devised a way to make both of these steps as easy as taking a photo. HOVER Inc. has developed a machine learning platform which can turn smartphone photos into an interactive, scaled 3D model. The model includes measurements accurate enough to use in devising quotes. The company was founded by A. J. Altman, an engineer and former Marine Infantry Officer, who based the platform on one originally developed to create 3D maps derived from aerial photographs, for use in military operations.
