Pix4D Desktop is able to create 3D models and orthomosaics out of overlapping images of known approximate position. We focus on UAV imagery, as well as on ground based imagery or manned photogrammetry.
In principle, it is possible to generate results out of satellite images if:
- There is a proper overlap (approximately 80% frontal overlap and 60% side overlap).
- It is possible to describe the camera in terms of position (latitude/longitude/altitude) and parameters (sensor size, pixel resolution, focal length).
Fulfilling the conditions above, it is possible to use Pix4D Desktop.
