Pix4Dsurvey example projects

Combination of Pix4Dmapper project and terrestrial laser scans

The goal of this project is:

  • Use the project processed in Pix4Dmapper and vectorize it in Pix4Dsurvey.
  • Use a combination of photogrammetry and a terrestrial laser scanner.
  • Organize the vectorized objects in layers.

Download project files

The dataset can be downloaded here (1.6 GB).

The downloaded compressed .zip file contains the following files and folders:

  • imagesRGB images in JPG format
  • pointclouds: point clouds in a Pix4Dsurvey point cloud format (.bpc).
  • Pix4Dsurvey_Demo_Rivaz.p4s: Pix4Dsurvey project file.
Open the .p4s Pix4Dsurvey project file

This section describes how to open the .p4s project to set it up for vectorization.

Access: To download Pix4Dsurvey click here.
  1. Open Pix4Dsurvey.
  2. Drag and drop Pix4Dsurvey_Demo_Rivaz.p4s on the screen. More options in the Project management article.

Once the import is completed both the point clouds and calibrated images will be displayed. You are ready to start vectorizing the project.
