Abstract:
    Mapify uses state of the art technology to create immersive & interactive 3D maps of building interiors. Applications include virtual tours, architecture, construction, mining and interior design
What is the unmet need in society that your idea will fulfill ?
    Using CAD and similar softwares to create 3D models is time consuming and limiting for architects and designers. Similarly, real estate buyers have to rely mostly on 2D floor plans or photographs when analyzing properties. Our product will help all of these people by giving them interactive 3D data.
Who needs it ? How many would benefit ?
   The Pakistani real estate and construction market is worth $700 billion. A large portion consists of luxury real estate and commercial properties, both of which can be disrupted by our product. Thousands of Interior designers, real estate buyers and sellers can benefit from it.
How will the solution works
    The system consists of a microsoft kinect v2 and an nvidia jetson tx2. The kinect is used to generate point clouds of building interiors. Planes are then fitted to the point clouds to create a 3D model which is further refined by texturing to make it photorealistic. All processing is done on the tx2 which is optimized to provide rapid processing of image data. The system can be mounted on a mobile robot or used as a handheld device.
Who are your competitors ? How is your solution different
    There are no such products in the Pakistani market so we have the first movers advantage. No one is building technology solutions for the real estate and construction industry which leaves this lucrative market wide open for us.
