  • Help: Opens the Pix4Dmapper help.

The section 1. Reflectance Map also displays information for each band of the generated Reflectance Map(s) for each group of images. The following information is displayed:

  • Band: Name of the band. If more than one group exists and the same band name exists in different groups, the bands are displayed as "Groupname_band."
  • Min: Minimum pixel value per band.
  • Avg: Average pixel value per band.
  • Max: Maximum pixel value per band.
  • Stdev: Standard deviation of pixel values per band.
  • Var: Variance of pixel values per band.

If the Reflectance Map(s) are not generated, it displays: "Reflectance Map not yet generated."

Reflectance Map not generated Reflectance Map generated 
  • One Reflectance Map is generated for each band of each group of images.
  • The Reflectance Maps contain the reflectance values of each pixel and are used to generate the Index Maps.
  • The Index Maps are calculated using some specific band(s) from one or more groups of images. Therefore, information from one or more Reflectance Maps may be used.
