PIX4Dscan is a professional asset flight application for iPad and tablet developed by photogrammetry experts for visual inspections from images. This companion of PIX4Dinspect allows for both manual and automatic drone flights (Cell Tower, Orbit, Cylinder, and Grid), to meet your mission’s specific needs and to collect actionable data.
PIX4Dscan provides two versions: Inspection and Inspection-Telecom.
The Inspection version contains functionalities used to perform general scanning and inspection of structures. The Inspection-Telecom version contains the additional functionality aimed at scanning and inspecting cell towers.
PIX4Dscan provides four mission types: Orbit, Cylinder, Cell Tower, and Grid.
The Cell Tower mission is a flight mission specifically designed to optimize the scanning of cell towers and it is available only with the Inspection-Telecom version. The Cell Tower mission will enable the 3D reconstruction of cell tower structures and antennas with the highest level of detail. For more information, contact our sales team here.
The Cell Tower mission is a flight mission specifically intended for scanning cell towers. The Cell Tower mission aims to efficiently capture the components and geometries by applying multiple sub-missions: Orbit, Cylinder, Single vertical, and Underneath Orbit.
The full description of the Cell Tower mission is available here: PIX4Dscan - Manual (see Cell Tower mission).
The Cell Tower mission contains the recommended workflow for scanning such structures. For the mission planning, points of interest such as the center and the maximum altitude of the cell tower need to be manually identified in the field. The mission is then created in relation to the measured position of these references.
The instructions about how to perform the Cell Tower mission are available here: How to scan cell towers.
PIX4Dscan is available in the following languages: English, French, Japanese, and Spanish.
PIX4Dscan is currently supported on iOS (iPad only) and Android (tablet only). Pix4Dscan requires iPad OS 11.0 / Android 7 or later. We recommend using the latest OS version as it is usually the one used for internal testing. Pix4Dscan has been tested with the following devices:
- iPad Mini 5th gen, iPad Pro 2nd gen, iPad 7th gen, iPad Air 2.

Internet connection in the field is not strictly required but it is recommended. The processes that require internet connection are listed here: Is Internet connection needed to use PIX4Dscan?
Before performing an offline flight, it is also recommended to connect to the internet and move around the basemaps, so that they can be cached and made available for offline viewing. The instructions on how to save offline maps are available here: Offline basemaps and missions.
