CoreLogic has been granted a patent for systems and methods that generate and display interactive 3D building models. The technology allows for the simulation of risk associated with buildings, prediction of changes, and the display of contextual information. Users can interact with the models through augmented reality and control features. The patent also covers the ability to display different views of the building based on user movement.

Generation and interactive display of 3d building models
A recently granted patent (Publication Number: US11776221B2) describes a computer-implemented method for an augmented reality (AR) modeling system. The method involves displaying a user interface that shows a view of a location where the user is present and prompts the user to select one of multiple visually depicted properties. Once a property is selected, the system obtains a three-dimensional (3D) model of a building on that property, represented by connected points and shapes in 3D space. The user interface then displays an overlaid view of the 3D model on top of the location view. As the user moves within the location, the system dynamically updates the displayed view of the 3D model to reflect the user's movement and the state of the location at that time.
The method also includes additional features such as prompting the user to provide input to place the 3D model on a surface within the location view. The system can display different views of the 3D model based on the user's movement and can rotate or zoom in on the model accordingly. Contextual information associated with the building's features can be obtained and displayed alongside the 3D model. Additionally, the system allows for the display of captured interior images of the building along with the 3D model.
The patent also describes the ability to transition the displayed 3D model into a dollhouse view, where individual layers of the model can be removed. This feature can be activated by selecting a user interface element.
Overall, this patent outlines a computer-implemented method for an AR modeling system that enables users to interact with 3D models of buildings in real-world locations. The system provides a dynamic and immersive experience by overlaying the 3D model onto the user's view of the location and updating the model based on the user's movement. The additional features, such as contextual information display and dollhouse view, enhance the user's ability to explore and interact with the 3D model.
