Advanced functionalities



Automatic reports can be generated at any time during the inspection process.




Pix4Dinspect can record, compile and list annotations, as soon as they are added to the images, together with the AI recognized antennas.

Reports contain information about:

  • The user generating the report.
  • The asset properties.
  • The project details.
  • An overview of the image annotations.
  • A full catalog of the single annotations per image with the image annotation details.
  • The antennas' inventory.
Information: The antennas' inventory body is only available for Cell tower assets, if antennas are present and are recognized.


The available formats for the report generation are:


Reports exported in this format can be used to produce customized reports or other outputs with third-party applications.

Reports exported in this format collect the information generated during the inspection phase in an organized file with a default Pix4D style. For custom reports, contact our Sales team.

Information: All the dimensions and altitudes in the report are displayed in the unit defined in the Account settings. More information in Pix4Dinspect - FAQ.

PDF structure

The .pdf report is structured as follows:

  • A front-page containing:
    • The Asset name
    • Information about the user generating the report
    • The date and time of the report generation
    • The table of contents
  • An Overview section containing:
    • A snapshot of the asset on a base map background, taken from the Dashboard
    • The Asset type
    • The position of the asset (WGS84 coordinates that position the Asset onto the map of the Dashboard)
    • Ground reference altitude
    • The tower height (only if Panel antenna recognition is enabled in the Options before processing).
    • The description of the Asset
    • The date and time when the Project was created
  • An Annotations section containing:
    • The total number of annotations of the project
    • The number of annotations per severity level
    • The full list of annotations with their type, severity level and description
      For each annotated image:
    • The image with its name, its number of annotations, its position and yaw angle.
    • In greater detail, for each annotation of the image, an enhanced cut-out of the annotation area together with the annotation’s properties (type, severity level and description).


  • An Inventory section containing:
    • The full list of antennas with their ID and type.
      For each antenna:
    • Its properties: name, type, dimensions and orientations, altitude, supported frequencies, model, status.
    • If any, the image chosen as best fit with the zoom level and image framing that were active when defining the image as such.Antenna.jpg
