Giroptic 360cam

Can we use 360 cams like this one to quicken data acquistion on indoor mapping applications? Surely this is the future?

Dear Ian,

It is not possible to use the 360 images because those have typically been obtained by stitching several images together and this introduces artefacts. However, if you can get the original images (unstitched), then yes, 60 cameras are indeed a very convenient way to capture imagery. 

Best regards,

What about go pro cameras on on a 360 platform ?

Dear Arturo, Iain,

Things have moved since we last answered. Pix4D now supports 360 images in the equirectangular format. See
