Can the Size of the Orthomosaic and DSM Tiles be defined?

Pix4Dmapper generates tiles for the orthomosaic and the DSM during step 3. DSM, Orthomosaic and Index.

Orthomosaic and DSM tiles are automatically generated so that each tile is 5000*5000 pixels. Tiles may be slightly smaller at the edges of the project area.

The size of the tiles cannot be defined according to a different tile file size or total number of tiles.

    Is this a feature that is going to be supported? If it is on here, it is obviously being asked for. The current default size is way too small. For projects that are soo big that they actually need to be tiled, the number of tiles at 5000 pix^2 is just overwhelming to manage.

    Hi, 

    Since there are a lot of users that wish to export tiles using custom sizes and the idea is very interesting we will pass your suggestions to the product manager so they can implement the option in future releases.

    At this moment, in order to split the output Orthomosaic into custom tiles, we advise you to have a look at different GIS software like ArcGis and QGIS. There is a plugin for QGIS called Grid Splitter. It allows the user to spit the input Orthomosaic in custom size tiles. You can find more information about QGIS and Grid Splitter following this links:
