  • Patent number: 11069117
    Abstract: Systems and methods for generating three-dimensional models having regions of various resolutions are provided. In particular, imagery data can be captured and utilized to generate three-dimensional models. Regions of texture can be mapped to regions of a three-dimensional model when rendered. Resolutions of texture can be selectively altered and regions of texture can be selectively segmented to reduce texture memory cost. Texture can be algorithmically generated based on alternative texturing techniques. Models can be rendered having regions at various resolutions.

  • Publication number: 20210064217
    Abstract: This application generally relates to defining, displaying and interacting with tags in a 3D model. In an embodiment, a method includes generating, by a system including a processor, a three-dimensional model of an environment based on sets of aligned three-dimensional data captured from the environment, and associating tags with defined locations of the three-dimensional model, wherein the tags are respectively represented by tag icons that are spatially aligned with the defined locations of the three-dimensional model as included in different representations of the three-dimensional model rendered via an interface of a device, wherein the different representations correspond to different perspectives of the three-dimensional model, and wherein selection of the tag icons causes the tags respectively associated therewith to be rendered at the device.
