Aerial & Underwater 3D Mapping
Reef Smart’s aerial and underwater 3D mapping processes are ideal for showcasing a resort’s key features, both above and below the surface of the water. Our 3D mapping integrates several advanced technologies, including photogrammetry, 3D modelling and 360° Virtual Reality (VR), to create a unique and immersive experience for resort guests and would-be guests.
Our digital interactive maps of the resort and nearby coral reef ecosystems incorporate 360° VR to provide guests with access to the heart of the action from the comfort of their own homes. These interactive tools allow prospective guests to explore key areas of the resort including its rooms, reception area, dining spaces, and the watersports and dive center facilities. Guests can then transition into the coral reef ecosystem itself, for a look at the incredible underwater experience the resort has on offer.
Our interactive maps can raise web engagement and online conversion in the critical “search and shopping” phase. Our maps are integrated into search engines so that visitors can make enquiries and initiate bookings directly following their VR experience. Advanced virtual tours are becoming an increasingly important element of the resort booking process and Reef Smart is the only company in the world that provides this service for a resort’s resources that lie above and below the surface of the water.
From the data we collect, we can also generate multiple non-digital assets that serve as a valued resource and memento for guests, as well as a marketing tool and revenue stream for resorts. These products include Reef Smart’s signature handheld waterproof cards , wall arts , briefing charts , weatherproof shoreline signage , and custom brochures. These products provide guests with crucial insights into local and regional dive and snorkel sites, as well as raise environmental awareness and improve in-water safety for guests.
