How to compare volumes on Pix4Dbim Cloud?

Important: The Volume Comparison feature is only available on Pix4Dbim Cloud.

To compare volumes

1. Select the volume tool by clicking volume_icon.png in the 2D or 3D view and create the new volume or select a pre-existing volume.

Tip: For more information on volume measurements: How to calculate volumes on the Cloud.

2. On the right panel, click Compare volumes.
3. Select the time range for the volume comparison. Two options are available:

  • The volumes of the defined area can be compared on all the datasets of your site.
  • The volumes can be compared on a specific time window.
Note: The Volume Comparison tool only works if the DSM is available for all the projects selected for the comparison. Ensure all the projects in the site/in the time window have a DSM.


4. Define how the base surface elevation should be determined according to the points of the base polygon. By default, the triangulation method is used, but other options are possible.

Tip: For more information on which base surface is recommended to measure the volume: Which Base Surface is recommended for the Volume Calculation?.

5. Click Start. The results will start to be computed and they will be emailed to the project's owner in the form of a .csv file with quantified data.
