Beyond the Point
Welcome to the future of surveying! In an industry where precision and efficiency are paramount, PIX4Dsurvey is a game-changer. This guide aims to take you through the software’s capabilities, from basic features to advanced functionalities. By the end, you’ll know how to extract only the most relevant information to speed up and simplify your surveying workflows.
Capture Your Data
The First Step in Any Surveying Project
Capturing accurate data is the cornerstone of any surveying project. With PIX4Dsurvey, you can capture images or point clouds using a drone or any laser scanner. If you’re using a drone, the free PIX4Dcapture mobile app can automate and optimise your flights. For those interested in drones, the DJI Mavic 3 Enterprise offers unique features that can be beneficial for your business.
Import and Combine
Seamless Data Integration
Importing data into PIX4Dsurvey is a breeze. You can import data from other Pix4D software or use .las or .laz files. The software allows you to combine multiple datasets into the same project, working with both imagery data and LiDAR point clouds. For more on surveying with drones, check out our survey guide.
Vectorise Your Data
Engineering-Ready CAD Vector Files
PIX4Dsurvey comes with built-in vectorisation tools that allow you to generate a TIN to model the ground and create engineering-ready CAD vector files. You can vectorise your project using points, polylines, polygons, and catenary curves with just a few clicks.
Model Your Terrain
From Point Cloud to Actionable Results
Move from a lightweight point cloud to a model of your terrain using PIX4Dsurvey’s Smart Grid, TIN, and terrain classification features. This enables you to get accurate, actionable results that can be used for various applications, including asset inspections. For more on this, visit our inspection guide.
Integrate and Scale
Custom Layers and Billions of Points
PIX4Dsurvey isn’t just about capturing and modelling data; it’s also about integrating it into your existing workflows. You can open your simplified, accurate data in any CAD or GIS software with custom layers and properties. Plus, PIX4Dsurvey can handle billions of points, allowing you to work with as many point cloud files as you like in the same projects.
Easy Export and Your Choice of Point Cloud
Smooth Transition to Your Preferred Software
Every surveyed object in PIX4Dsurvey can be assigned to a layer and edited. These layers can be exported separately or together, ensuring a smooth transition to your preferred CAD or GIS software. You also have the flexibility to import projects from PIX4Dcloud, PIX4Dmatic, PIX4Dmapper, or any .las or .laz file.
