To have enough visual content in the images for the Pix4Dmapper to reconstruct the scene, we recommend a minimum resolution of 640x480. Smaller sensors (320x256) are not recommended and typically do not calibrate. Using a lens with a smaller focal length (9mm) widens the angle and improves the reliability of the mapping, though it is possible to use longer (19mm) focal lengths.
Recommended integrated solutions that work out of the box include:
- Zenmuse XT
- FLIR Vue Pro
- Tau2-based sensor
- Sensefly’s Thermomap
- Aeryon labs FLIR board
Other custom integration based on FLIR VuePro or Tau2 sensor are also supported, but depending on the integrator, the image geolocation and EXIF metadata may not be implemented (208592186).
When creating a project with one of these supported camera, make sure the Pixel Size is set to 17 μm and that the Focal Length value is correct. For step by step instructions about how to modify the camera model: 202560169.
