How to use tools - PIX4Dreact

PIX4Dreact tools

PIX4Dreact allows measurements to be made and markers to be added to the orthomosaic.

1. select.png The Move tool is used to pan the map by either clicking and holding the right or the left mouse buttons and dragging. A single click will display the GPS and USNG coordinates focus_on_gps_position.jpg as a temporary measurement with the option to save as a marker.

2. measurement_unit.png The Measure tool is used to measure distances or areas. The measurements are temporary and cannot be saved or exported. However, measurements can be saved as markers which are permanent and exportable.

3. marker.png The Mark tool is used to place markers which are automatically saved in the map. The following markers are available:

  • circle_small.jpg Point: Displays the GPS and USNG coordinates.
  • distance.jpg Line: Displays the length (m,ft).
  • area.jpg Area: Displays the surface area (m 2, ft 2 ).
