How to export the marks of GCPs/Manual Tie Points in the GCP/MTP Manager

The option to export the marks of Manual Tie Points (MTPs) and / or Ground Control Points (GCPs) is available if at least one MTP or GCP exists in the project and has been marked on at least one image. In order to export the marks:

1. Click Project > GCP / MTP Manager...
2. In section GCP/MTP Table, click Export Marks... The pop-up Export Image Marks opens.

 
Note: If the model does not have an MTP or GCP marked on at least one image, the option Export Points will be grayed out.

3. Navigate to the path where the marks file will be saved.
4. On File name, type the desired file name.
5. (optional) On Save as Type by default Pix4D marks files (*.txt, *.csv) is selected; to change to another output format: click Pix4D marks files (*.txt, *.csv) and select the desired format, the following options appear:

    • Pix4D marks files (*.txt, *.csv)
    • Bingo text files(*.txt)
    • XML structure (*xml)
 
Important: 
  • If the MTPs and / or GCPs marks file is going to be imported into a Pix4Dmapper project, it is highly recommended to export the marks as a Pix4D marks files (*.txt, *.csv). This file contains information about the zoom level at which the MTPs / GCPs are marked on the images.
  • Usually, the higher the zoom level, the more precisely the point is marked. The points that are marked on a high zoom level will have more impact on the reconstructed model than points marked in a low zoom level. For example, when GCPs are marked without zooming into the images, the GCP error can be 10 times higher than when GCPs are marked by zooming into the images.
  • The Bingo and XML structure file formats do not save the zoom level at which the points have been marked. For more information about the XML structure file: 205032219.

6. Click Save. 
7. (optional) If a Pix4D marks files (*.txt, *.csv) was selected, the pop-up Pix4D Marks File Options opens. Select the Optional Data to be exported and the Data Separator and click OK. For more information: 202558369.

 
Important: If the MTPs and / or GCPs marks file is going to be imported into a Pix4Dmapper project, it is highly recommended to export the zoom level at which the points are marked on the images.
