About iGUIDE

Access to property information benefits everyone. Faster decision making, better planning, and easier navigation are the results. iGUIDE 3D tours include accurate floor plans, 360° images, room dimensions, and more to make this happen. Visual Properties uses the iGUIDE 3D tour camera to capture data which is then processed by the iGUIDE Drafting Team to create iGUIDEs that are shared and experienced online. Explore the functionality of the iGUIDE below.

Features and Standards

Accurate ANSI-Z765-2021 Measurements and Area Calculations

You can feel confident about your choice to use iGUIDE because typical iGUIDE measurement uncertainty, in distance measurement on a floor plan, is 0.5% or better and the corresponding uncertainty in square footage is 1% or better. Standards stipulate maximum square footage errors of 2% and iGUIDE exceeds these requirements.  iGUIDE uses the ANSI-Z765-2021 measurement standard to calculate the required Gross Living Area (GLA) and is fully compatible with new rules introduced by Fannie Mae beginning April 1st, 2022

Superior Floor Plan Navigation

You will never get confused, lost, or disoriented in a property again. Every iGUIDE is delivered with an interactive floor plan and 360 degree panoramic visuals, giving the user full control over their experience while exploring the property. Navigation is better with an integrated floor plan because you know where you are at all times. Why go through the effort of visiting a property physically or pretend to be walking virtually, when you can instantaneously teleport to where you want to be like in a dream?

Speed of Capture

Our trained technicians can do both the photography and measurement data capture at the same time. Using the patented iGUIDE camera system allows a floor plan and 3D virtual tour to be captured in a single visit, without significantly increasing the amount of time spent at each property.

3D Tour

3D Tour – Visually explore whatever you want from the perspective of someone standing in the property. Check out the dishwasher, the fireplace, or look at the ceiling. Get a more immersive visual experience with 360° views than with still photos alone.

Floor Plan

Floor plans are a great way to represent a space in 2 dimensions and understand an entire property at a glance. They give context for each room relative to the whole and help with planning and decision making. They are an interactive part of the iGUIDE 3D tour and can be downloaded as pdf, jpg, svg, or dxf.

Floor and room dimensions – iGUIDE 3D tour camera’s time-of-flight laser scanner gives confidence in measurements. Feel assured that you can deliver reliable measurements and floor plans with a typical dimensional uncertainty of 0.5% or smaller.

Square Footage

Square footage/floor areas attach value to a property and are used in real estate listings, comparable analysis, and Automated Valuation Models. In the space measurement marketplace you can sometimes see claims of 99% accuracy from other companies. This is more of an attempt to use marketing-speak and over-simplify the information.  Every iGUIDE 3D tour provides detailed and defensible square footage analysis and typical iGUIDE square footage uncertainty easily meets the requirements of various property measurement standards (such as 2% for BOMA and Alberta RMS).

Advanced Measurements will change the way you understand a space by giving you the freedom to measure either directly in the floor plan or in an image on the iGUIDE 3D tour. This is next level virtual immersion in a property.
