Inputs and outputs



  • The main input to Pix4Dfields is either JPEG or TIFF image files (multispectral, RGB, and thermal).
Warning: Do not modify the images, i.e. do not rotate or edit the images. Modifying images alters the geometrical properties of the camera and may deteriorate the quality of the results.
Extension Description
.jpg, .jpeg JPEG images
.tif, .tiff Monochromatic TIFF
Multi-band TIFF (RGB / Infrared / thermal)
1 layer (no pyramid, no multi-page)
8, 10, 12, 14, 16 bit integer, floating point
  • Pre processed maps (Import as GeoTIFF)
  • Field boundaries (import as Shapefile, KML or GeoJSON)
  • Annotations (import as GeoJSON)


Pix4Dfields can generate these outputs which can be exported for use outside the software:

  • Orthomosaic (GeoTIFF file): 2D model (map) created by blending multiple orthophotos. Color balanced to be visually pleasing.
  • Digital Surface Model (GeoTIFF file): Consists of elevation data.
  • Index map (GeoTIFF file): To each index is associated with an index map. For each pixel on this map, the value of the pixel is derived from the associated color value.
  • Zonation maps (export as Shapefile, KML or GeoJSON): A map that translates information from the vegetation index maps into a more operational layer.
  • Prescription maps (export as Shapefile, KML or GeoJSON): A zonation map where each of the zones has a value for the Variable Rate Application.
  • Annotations (export as GeoJSON): Adding annotations to areas of interest helps convey more valuable and actionable information. 
  • PDF report (export as PDF): A report that aggregates all the information in your project for easy sharing.
