How to export ISOXML / ISOBUS format in PIX4Dfields

This article introduces the ISOXML format, also known as ISOBUS, and explains how to export these file formats in PIX4Dfields.


ISOXML is a standardized data exchange format that facilitates interoperability between agricultural equipment and software from different manufacturers. It was developed under the ISO 11783 standard, also known as ISOBUS, which defines communication protocols for electronic systems used in agriculture. When PIX4Dfields exports Targeted Operations maps (prescriptions) in ISOXML format, it packages the necessary information in a way that is compatible with the equipment that supports the ISOBUS standard.

How to export ISOXML from PIX4Dfields?

First, a Targeted Operations map needs to be created. These maps can be created using a clean grid, using annotations (i.e., Magic tool detections), or creating a zonation based on an index layer. For more information: How to create a targeted spraying map.

Once the Operation map is ready:

    • Go to Export, at the top-right-hand side.
    • Click Operations.
    • Select Operation for, Generic Tractor/Sprayer.
    • Select ISOXML format.Export_ISOXML.png
