Practical knowledge

Can satellite imagery be processed?

Pix4Dmapper is able to reconstruct scenes using overlapping images. We focus on UAV imagery, as well as on terrestrial photogrammetry.
In principle, it is possible to generate results using satellite images if:
  • The high-enough overlap is achieved (approximately 80% frontal overlap and 60% side overlap).
  • Camera parameters are defined (sensor size, pixel resolution, focal length).
After PIX4Dfields 2.0 release, access to satellite Sentinel-2 was enabled. For more information: Satellite data in PIX4Dfields.
