Which processing options are used on the cloud?

For more information: 115004575526.

 

Can a processing area be used on the cloud?

One processing area can be used for processing on the cloud. However, the processing area should be drawn using Pix4D Desktop beforehand:

1. After installing Pix4D Desktop (download link), create a new project from the images. For more information: 202557369. Alternatively if the project was previously processed on the cloud servers, it is possible to download the project. For more information: 115000707003.
2. Create a processing area. For more information: 202560179.
3. Upload the project with the processing area from Pix4D Desktop to Pix4D Cloud. For more information: 202558589.


Can GCPs be used on the cloud?

Ground control points (GCPs) can be used for processing on the cloud. However, they should be marked using Pix4D Desktop beforehand:

1. After installing Pix4D Desktop (download link), create a new project from the images. For more information: 202557369. Alternatively if the project was previously processed on the cloud servers, it is possible to download the project. For more information: 115000707003.
2. Import GCPs. For more information: 202560239.
3. Upload the project with GCPs from Pix4D Desktop to Pix4D Cloud. For more information: 202558589.

 

Can a project without image geolocation be processed on the cloud?

Projects without image geolocation can be fully processed on the Cloud. However, the orthomosaic generated might not be correctly oriented.

 

What is the output coordinate system of a project that is processed on the cloud?

  • Projects without image geolocation that are processed on the cloud will be in an arbitrary coordinate system and thus will not have a map on the background. 
  • Projects with image geolocation will have as an output coordinate system the same as the image geolocation. If the image geolocation is in a geographic coordinate system, the output coordinate system will be the corresponding UTM zone. 
  • If a project is uploaded from Pix4D Desktop, then the output coordinate system will be the one selected in Pix4D Desktop.
