    Hola

    El software al procesar las imágenes realiza algún conteo automático de objetos?, ejemplo al realizar un estudio de capacidades carga de playa se necesita saber como dato la cantidad de personas que se encuentran  y quisiera saber si este conteo se realiza automáticamente para así evitar el conteo manual 

  • Fernanda Bosmediano

    Estimado Ivis,

    Muchas gracias por compartir esta interesante aplicación con nosotros. Pix4Dmapper no realiza un recuento automático de objetos. En Pix4Dmapper, se puede contar objetos manualmente (o semi-manualmente):

    • Se podria contar el numero de objetos o en este caso el número de personas en el ortomosaico y las nubes de puntos. (manualmente)
    • En el caso de que no fueran personas pero por ejemplo árboles, se podría dibujar una línea de perfil en el DSM que genera Pix4Dmapper. Luego podría contar los árboles en esta línea de perfil y multiplicar el número por el número de líneas de perfil. Este método supone que los árboles están bien distribuidos. (semi-manualmente)

     

    El primer método sería más preciso pero más lento, mientras que el segundo sería más rápido y más fácil pero menos preciso. Quizás puede sugerirnos esto como una nueva funcionalidad en uno de nuestros software. Para eso, se puede crear una sugerencia en nuestra comunidad: https://community.pix4d.com/t/how-to-vote-for-your-favorite-pix4dmapper-feature-requests-suggestions/10032 Estamos siempre monitoreando los requerimientos de nuestros usuarios.
