Difference between Pix4Dmapper and GIS Software

There are several Geographic Information System (GIS) software like ArcGIS, Global Mapper, Quantum GIS, etc. Such software have numerous functionalities for analyzing spatial data. What Pix4Dmapper does, is to provide the input for spatial analysis.

GIS software need some input (Point Cloud, DSM, Orthomosaic) and the do not do image processing in order to acquire this input. 

Pix4Dmapper can process thousands of images and generate Point Clouds, DSM, Orthomosaic. These files can be imported into GIS software.

Pix4Dmapper has several useful GIS functions such as:

  • Measurments.
  • Volume calculations.
  • Contour lines generation.
  • Point Cloud Classification.
  • Vectorization.

Pix4Dmapper does not replace the full functionalities of a GIS software.
