Mapping internal structures such as Manholes or Lift Stations

I am looking to see if anyone has been successful at mapping structures internally. I am anticipating on using a gopro hero 4 silver on a stick and lower it into a manhole with high intensity lights and rotating it 360 degrees as I bring the camera up. My questions are - can I load the camera settings for a gopro in Pix4d, if so what would I need to set? If anyone has tried a 360 camera, how did it work?

Hi Jason,

I would recommend checking the Is it possible to process & create point cloud data of inside a manhole? community post as it is related to your question.

As for the camera model, GoPro HERO4 Silver is included in the internal camera and will be automatically recognized when importing the images into the Pix4D software. 

Best,
