How to visualize the 3D Textured Mesh with Georeference

The 3D Textured Mesh that Pix4Dmapper generates is not georeferenced. It has coordinates in a local coordinate system centered around the project.

Some external viewers permit to add the offset of this file and place the 3D Textured Mesh at its correct position. If this is used, the 3D Textured Mesh will have the same precision as the mesh in the rayCloud of Pix4Dmapper. 

The offset of the project is generated after step 1. Initial Processing. The project_name_offset.xyz file is stored in the params folder under: project_name\1_initial\params\project_name_offset.xyz

For more information about the params folder: 202977149.

 
Note: The project_name_offset.xyz file contains the offset coordinates, but it does not store references about the coordinate system and datum, which are defined by the selected output coordinate system in Pix4Dmapper.
 
When importing the .xyz file in other software, such software will generally require, in a graphic interface, which datum and coordinate system is being used. In that case it is possible to use the project_name_wkt.prj file that is generated in the params folder. This file contains the projection of the output coordinate system. For more information: 202977149.
