Does anyone have any experience with the drone mappings applications such as DroneDeploy or Pix4d? Their software flies your drone for you in a pattern taking pictures, with an overlap, to provide a realistic navigable 3D model of a structure or really anything else on the ground. A shoot might involve hundreds of pictures which are then uploaded to their servers to be stitched like Matterport does.

There is nothing to navigate with in a 3d mapped model. It is just a 3D model and there is no way to walk through it.
It can be used in architecture and 3d design and it also provides volumetric measurements of anything captured. Technically you can measure a pile of dirt on a ground that will help your customer to estimate how much trucks they need to move it from a site.

And it is different from Matterport as in 3D mapping GPS coordinates plays the biggest role. Matterport cameras may be coming with GPS on board but I do not believe it is used in any way for stitching.

As for flying in patterns it is just an additional service from DroneDeploy and Pix4D to build a drone survey path. You do not have to use this service if you have a commercial drone. Drone manufacturers usually supply a feature in their software for commercial drones that allows a pilot to build a path for survey and fly it taking pictures automatically. Then you can load these picture into your DroneDeploy or Pix4D account and they will build a 3D model from these pictures.
