Outputs - PIX4Dsurvey

Outputs of PIX4Dsurvey

PIX4Dsurvey can generate the following outputs, which can be exported for use with third-party software:

Point clouds
.las, .laz
Point clouds according to selected input point clouds and selected terrain filter or ASPRS classes.
3D vectorized objects
.dxf, .shp, .geojson, .zip (with .shp files)
Polylines, catenaries, polygons, and markers. The placement of objects in layers is preserved.
Comma-separated values table containing coordinates of the markers.
Volume report
.pdf, .html, .csv
Detailed report of selected volumes.
Volume polygon
.dxf, .shp, zip (with .shp files), geojson
Base surface of the selected volumes.
3D Volume
.xml (LandXML)
Volume object (TIN of the volume).
Grid of points
.dxf, .shp, geojson, .zip (with .shp files), .las, .laz, .csv
Grid of points generated with the Grid of points algorithm.
.xml (LandXML), .tif
Triangular Irregular Network (TIN) in LandXML format or in GeoTIFF format (raster).
Contour lines
.dxf, .shp, geojson, .zip (with .shp files)
Contour lines generated with the Contour Lines algorithm. The placement of objects in layers is preserved.
Video audiovisual media file format generated using the Video & Views feature of PIX4Dsurvey
Information: The actual coordinate values of exported geometries are in the coordinate system used in PIX4Dsurvey. When using the same coordinate system in PIX4Dsurvey and in third-party software, the outputs should automatically align.

Since the coordinate system is not directly defined in the .dxf format, an additional file (.prj) containing the coordinate system definition is automatically created. The .prj file can be used as a reference whenever additional information about the .dxf's coordinate system is needed.

Tip: It is possible to export outputs in a single .zip file that contains .shp, .shx, .dbf, and .prj files. Some third-party software support importing a single .zip file that contains multiple files instead of importing each file individually.
