EXIF and XMP tag information for project creation


Pix4D products read the information from the image EXIF data.

In order to create a photogrammetric project and successfully process the calibration, certain EXIF metadata are required in the images. Other metadata are optional but improve the results.

The Exif/Xmp tags required for project creation or optionally used during the radiometric correction are described in the following support article: Exif/Xmp tags required for radiometric correction for multispectral camera.

The document below lists the EXIF and XMP tags needed for project creation in:
