Aerial Metrics Maptools

Years of experience working with Pix4Dmapper and public safety agencies led to the development of a suite of tools that supplement Pix4D and make workflows simpler.  The software address six key issues:

  • On scene coverage analysis of sUAS imagery

  • Identifying excess images and thereby reducing processing time

  • Preparing elevation GCPs to produce correctly leveled models (no hardware required)

  • Preparing images from orthomosaics for inclusion in reports (replaces GIS software for this purpose)

  • Preparing x/y/z points lists

  • Providing optimized Pix4D processing profiles for common scenarios
