If you look at a GeoCV created 3D Tour, on first glance, you might think it is Matterport. It's a David versus Golith Story.
If you look at a GeoCV created 3D Tour, on first glance, you might be thinking that you are looking at a Matterport Spaces 3D Tour:
✓ Dollhouse View
✓ Floor Plan View (with measurements)
✓ Walk Around View
✓ Floor Plans
And, this tour was shot using an (extra smart) 3D-enabled smartphone.
On WGAN-TV Live at 5 (5 pm EST GMT -5) on Wednesday, 17 January 2018, CEO and Co-Founder @AntonYakubenko, PhD will demo and discuss GeoCV; including Matterport Versus GeoCV.
You can Join the Virtual Studio Audience to ask Anton questions directly.
Anton is one of the speakers at Inman Connect NYC 2018 (22-26 January 2018). He is on a panel: Visual Revolution: Breakthroughs in Virtual Reality 3D and Video. [Matterport CEO Bill Brown is on the same panel.)
I could imagine that Anton might give us a sneak peak of what he will announce at Inman Connect.
So, why have you not heard about GeoCV? They have been focused on New York City while they have been refining their technology, value-proposition and marketing strategy. I could imagine that Inman Connect, Anton will announce that GeoCV is now available across the United States (and potentially, around the globe).

Some additional backstory from Anton's LinkedIn Profile:
"GeoCV is a venture capital backed 3D capturing VR / AR company. Our vision is to enable everyone to capture the world in 3D with a phone and share it in virtual and augmented reality. We're currently using 3D camera-enabled Google Tango phones.
3D virtual tours for real estate is our beachhead market. We allow agents and brokerages differentiate themselves to win more listings and get more referrals, attract more qualified leads to their listings to sell faster spending less time on unpromising in-person showings. We've developed an advanced automated technology for providing unique 3D virtual tours, photography and floor plans at the highest quality and at an affordable price."
