How to use tools

Pix4Dreact tools

Pix4Dreact allows you to add markers and take measurements on the orthomosaic.

1. select.png The Move tool is used to pan the map by either clicking the right or the left mouse button.

2. focus_on_gps_position.jpg The GPS tool is a temporary annotation which shows the coordinates of an object and can be optionally saved as a marker in the map.

3. measurement_unit.png The Measure tool is used to measure distances or areas. The measurements are temporary, which means that they are not saved or exported. Optionally, they can be saved as markers, which are permanent and can be exported. 

4. 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: Shows the GPS coordinates.
  • distance.jpg Line: Shows the length (m/ft).
  • area.jpg Area: Shows the surface (ha).

  • marker_off-16.png No markers.

Edit measurements and markers

Edit measurements

  • Click the plus (+) to split the line into two segments.
  • To remove the vertices, drag the ones you would like to delete on top of any neighboring vertex. Wait until the red halo appears around the selected vertex, then release the mouse button.
  • To edit the vertices, click on them and move them in the desired direction.
