Allows the user to change the processing options and desired outputs for DSM and Orthomosaic generation of step 3. DSM, Orthomosaic and Index. It contains 4 sections:
- Resolution: Allows the user to define the spatial resolution used to generate the DSM and Orthomosaic.
- DSM Filters: Allows the user to define parameters to filter and smooth the points of the Point Cloud used to obtain the DSM.
- Raster DSM: Allows the user to select the output file format and options for the raster DSM.
- Orthomosaic: Allows the user to select the output file format for the Orthomosaic as well as different options related to the Orthomosaic generation.
Allows the user to define the spatial resolution used to generate the DSM and Orthomosaic.
- Automatic (default): By default one GSD is selected. One can also easily change the resolution to multiples of the GSD.
- Custom: Allows to select any value for the resolution of the Raster DSM and the Orthomosaic generation.
Allows the user to define parameters to filter and smooth the points of the Point Cloud used to obtain the DSM.
The following options are available:
- Use Noise Filtering: The generation of the Point Cloud can lead to noisy and erroneous points. The noise filtering corrects the altitude of these points with the median altitude of the neighboring points.
- Use Surface Smoothing: Once the noise filter has been applied, a surface is generated using the points. This surface can contain areas with erroneous small bumps. The surface smoothing corrects these areas by flattening them. This section allows the user to set the following parameter:
- Type: Three smoothing types can be selected:
- Sharp (default): Tries to preserve the orientation of the surface and to keep sharp features such as corners and edges of buildings. Only quasi-planar areas are flattened.
- Smooth: Tries to smooth areas, assuming that sharp features exist because of noise and that they should be removed. Areas that are not very planar are smoothed and become planar.
- Medium: This is a compromise between the two other options. It tries to preserve sharp features while flattening roughly planar areas.
Allows the user to select whether the raster DSM is generated and to select the method with which the DSM will be generated:
- GeoTIFF (activated by default): Saves the DSM as a GeoTIFF file. For most projects the DSM is split into several tiles and one GeoTIFF file is generated per tile.
- Method: The method that is used for the Raster DSM generation. The method will affect the processing time and the quality of the results.
- Inverse Distance Weighting: The inverse distance weighting algorithm is used to interpolate between points. This method is recommended for buildings.
- Triangulation: The triangulation algorithm based on Delaunay triangulation is used. This method is recommended for flat areas (agriculture fields) and stockpiles.
- Merge Tiles (activated by default): Generates a single DSM GeoTIFF file by merging the individual tiles. When this option is not selected, the merged DSM file is not generated.
Allows the user to select the output file format for the Orthomosaic as well as different parameters related to the Orthomosaic generation:
- GeoTIFF (activated by default): Saves the Orthomosaic into a GeoTIFF file. For most projects, the Orthomosaic is split into several tiles and one GeoTIFF file is generated per tile.
- Merge Tiles (activated by default): Generates a single Orthomosaic GeoTIFF file by merging the individual tiles. When this option is deactivated, the merged Orthomosaic file is not generated.
- GeoTIFF Without Transparency: Generates a GeoTIFF file without transparency. For more information: Transparency of the orthomosaic.
- Google Maps Tiles and KML: This option allows the user to generate the Google Maps and Google Earth files for the Orthomosaic.

Sehr geehrte Damen und Herren,
ist es möglich Ortophotos im jpeg-Format auszugeben bzw. zu erzeugen?
Pix4Dmapper kann leider keine Orthophotos in JPEG-Ausgabeformat erzeugen.
Es gibt eine andere Lösung: man kann IrfanView für die Konvertierung von TIFF in JPEG verwenden. Man muss nur beachten, dass die Georeferenzierung (.prj, .tfw) der neuen JPEG-Datei verloren geht. Das JPEG ist nur eine 2D-Darstellung des Orthophotos, es wird jedoch nicht georeferenziert.
Wenn man die Georeferenzierung des Orthophotos bewahren möchte, kann man die folgenden Anweisungen befolgen: How to convert a GeoTIFF File into a georeferenced .jpg File.
Hoffentlich ist das hilfreich. Für weitere Fragen oder Anregungen kannst Du gerne auf unser Forum schreiben: Pix4D Community.
When Google Map Tiles and KML are generated for the orthomosaic are they at the same resolution that has been specified for the geotiff files?
Hi William Osborne, It should have the same resolution as specified for the orthomosaic.
