“Cradles to Crayons helps support children that don’t always have the basic necessities. As a mother it’s hard to know any kid could go without basic needs. The donation we made, with the match through Matterport Cares, helped provide several children a winter coat.”

Case Study

Santa Clara University Virtually Showcases Its Campus

Santa Clara University desired a different approach to campus tours than the generic, often impersonal experiences offered by many colleges across the country. They utilized Matterport digital twins to create an immersive 3D rendering of multiple school buildings so students from all walks of life and locations could access the campus in a new way. With these scans in place, the university has built an inclusive and convenient touring experience for hundreds of aspiring learners.
