Pix4D Announces a New Generation of Tools for Photogrammetry, Drone Mapping and Analytics

Lausanne, Switzerland, March 31st, 2020: Photogrammetry leader Pix4D is announcing today the commercial release of next-generation software addressing the modern-day professional challenges. Developed in close collaboration with customers and partners, Pix4Dsurvey, Pix4Dmatic, Pix4Dinspect, and Pix4Dscan will contribute to revolutionizing the way professional customers operate and deliver their services.

Breaking ground with Pix4Dsurvey & Pix4Dmatic

Digital photogrammetry is an essential part of every modern surveyor’s toolkit and has contributed to launching hundreds of new drone mapping businesses around the world. Pix4Dsurvey and Pix4Dmatic represent the next step in photogrammetry, addressing major challenges in the geospatial industry.

Pix4Dsurvey is bridging the gap between digital photogrammetry and CAD by transforming point data into CAD-ready formats. It allows the vectorization of any element, thanks to the rayCloud environment. Dramatically reducing overall surveying time, and expanding possibilities for surveying and mapping professionals, Pix4Dsurvey is now available for trial and purchase.

Pix4Dmatic, a new photogrammetry software product, will enable accurate drone mapping on a new scale. Built for the latest generation of drones, it is optimized for processing thousands of images while maintaining survey-grade accuracy, halving the time taken to deliver your large project from images to point cloud. Pix4Dmatic beta program is now open for applications.

In addition, Pix4Dmapper version 4.5, a new update of the leading desktop photogrammetry software, is now available for download. With speed-up in the image calibration and point cloud generation by an average of 20% in both steps, it now enables users to process projects faster than ever.

Automating industrial inspection with Pix4Dscan & Pix4Dinspect

Manual inspection of industrial assets and infrastructure is time-consuming, expensive and at times dangerous. Current technology has reduced the danger but the process remains long and costly. Pix4Dscan and Pix4Dinspect will change that.

Pix4Dscan is a drone flight app designed to deal with complex structures. Pix4Dinspect cloud-based software is an analytics platform able to manage and inspect digital assets modelled with Pix4D’s best-in-market photogrammetry. Together they deliver an end-to-end solution for industrial inspections and asset management.

New and improved Pix4D Training platform and offering

New software needs first-class training material. This is why the new Pix4D Training platform is now easier than ever to access. All resources —from quick tip videos to official certifications — can be found at training.pix4d.com.

Christoph Strecha, Pix4D’s Founder and CEO, comments: “I am confident this set of mobile, cloud and desktop software are a major evolution for drone mapping applications, allowing projects to get progressively larger, and making data more actionable than ever. These products will revolutionize the way professionals work, improving efficiency and expanding possibilities.”
