The leading photogrammetry software for professional drone mapping
Capture RGB, thermal, or multispectral images with any camera or drone and import them to PIX4Dmapper.
PIX4Dmapper's photogrammetry algorithms transform your ground or aerial images in digital maps and 3D models.
Seamlessly process your projects on your desktop using our photogrammetry software.
Use the power of photogrammetry in the rayCloud environment to assess, control and improve the quality of your projects.
Use the quality report to examine a preview of the generated results, calibration details, and many more project quality indicators.
Measure and inspect
Accurately measure distances, areas, and volumes
Photogrammetry solution to power applications across industries
Advanced data processing for precise results
Obtain results with sub-centimetre accuracy thanks to photogrammetric analysis.
1-2 pixel GSD in X, Y directions
1-3 pixels GSD in the Z direction
Complete control over your project
Define an area of interest, select processing options, add ground control points or edit point clouds, DSMs, meshes, and orthomosaics.
Your workflow, your choice
Use default templates for automatic processing of your projects, or create your own with custom settings for full control over the data and quality.
rayCloud - The power of photogrammetry software
A unique environment connecting your original images to each point of the 3D reconstruction to visually verify and improve the accuracy of your project.
Automatic point cloud classification
Distinguish objects with machine learning classification processes.
Flatten & smooth digital surfaces
Create surfaces to improve planarity or fill holes in critical areas.
Easily measure surface, distance & volume
Measure in 3D with a fully-adjustable base height.
Control over the project accuracy
Annotate and edit 2D and 3D GCPs, check points, and MTPs with the highest accuracy, using both original images and 3D information at the same time.
Detailed quality report
Assess the accuracy and quality of your projects.
Any camera. Any drone. Any imagery. As long as it's a .jpg or a .tif.
Generate high resolution outputs for any project and use case
Easily export your digital maps and models to industry-compatible formats for further analysis or reporting
Outputs Mapper can provide:
Colour point cloud
The colour point cloud uses RGB data from a raster for colourisation. Each point of the point cloud receives the RGB value of the raster pixel that has the same location.
.las, .laz, .ply, .xyz
Classified point cloud
The point cloud is classified in 5 predefined groups: ground, road surface, high vegetation, building, human made object. The results of the classification are used for the DTM generation.
2D image map geometrically corrected such that the scale is uniform. Colour balanced to be visually pleasing.
GeoTiff (.tif), .kml
These are lines connecting points of equal elevation. They allow to better understand the shape of the land surface (the topography) on a map.
.shp, .dxf, .pdf
Digital terrain model (DTM), Digital elevation model (DEM)
2.5 D model of the mapped area after filtering out objects such as buildings, that contains (X,Y,Z) information but no colour information.
Digital surface model (DSM)
2.5 D model of the mapped area that contains (X,Y,Z) information, but no colour information.
GeoTiff (.tif), .xyz, .las, .laz
Each index is associated to an index map. For each pixel on this map, the value of the pixel is derived from the associated reflectance maps.
GeoTiff (.tif), .shp
Thermal maps are 2D maps displaying the thermal information from infrared imaging cameras for each pixel.
A reflectance map compiles the reflectance values of each pixel and geometry into a single function.
3D textured mesh
A representation of the shape of the model that consists of vertices, edges, faces and the texture from the images that is projected on it.
.ply, .fbx, .dxf, .obj, .pdf
Desktop application with floating license (use on up to 2 devices simultaneously)
Unlimited desktop processing and high-resolution outputs
Personal support and upgrades included during your subscription from Pix4D.
