One of the most tedious -- yet completely necessary -- aspects of purchasing a new home or signing a lease on an apartment is the open house, and GeoCV is using modern technology to make that part of the process easier. GeoCV uses a 3D modelling system to create a high definition, interactive layout of any house or apartment, letting prospective buyers or renters get a lay of the land from the comfort of their current abodes.

GeoCV uses a mobile app to take the 3D scans themselves, removing the need for any third-party hardware and making it accessible for any real estate agent or landlord. On the consumer end, GeoCV scans can be viewed in 2D in one's browser, but the optimal experience is to use a VR headset like Google Cardboard with one's phone.
