2D/3D view

 Previous  |  Next 

The photogrammetric results are available in the 2D/3D view only after the corresponding processing steps have been performed and the outputs optimized for their web visualization.

Layers

On the left panel, the Layers are displayed. The available ones are the following.

 
Note: The available layers depend on the processing options applied, on the image and the solution used.
  • annotation.png Annotations: It consists of a group of measurement objects that can be:
    • Markers
    • Distances
    • Areas
    • Volumes
    • Inspections
  • generic_dataset__1_.png Dataset: It gathers the following outputs generated during the photogrammetric processing
    • orthomosaic.png Orthomosaic
    • dsm.png DSM
    • point_cloud.pngPoint cloud
    • mesh.png3D Textured Mesh
  • ndvi.png Plant Health (NDVI): It shows the NDVI map, if generated or uploaded, and collects the created Fields and Field boundaries.
  • layers__1_.png Overlays: It gathers the CAD Overlays uploaded to the project.
 
Tip: The order of the Layers and of the items in the Layers can be changed by drag-and-drop.

Filter by name or tag

When looking for a layer or an item of a layer in the Layers panel, the filter is a useful tool to narrow the search.

At the top of the Layers tab,

  • To filter by name: type in the name of the layer or of its item.
  • To filter by tag: type the tag that has been previously assigned to this one to speed up the search process.

2D/3D view

 
Note: The 3D view is available after the point cloud has been generated. Before that, the 2D view is the only view that can be displayed.

The user can switch between the 2D and 3D view clicking 2D or 3D under the Basemap box.

  • The 2D view shows the annotations in 2D and the 2D outputs.
  • The 3D view shows the annotations in 3D and the 3D outputs.

The Basemap box allows switching between the Streets and Satellite Maps of Mapbox.

2D/3D tools

These tools allow the user to select, modify and create annotations in the 2D and 3D views. A detailed explanation in 2D/3D tools and annotations.

Visualization settings and commands

  • settings.png Viewer settings
    • In the 2D: It allows to enable or disable the labels (measurements) on the annotations.
    • In the 3D: It allows to change the color in the 3D background, to enable or disable the labels (measurements) on the annotations and to define the number of millions of points to be displayed in the model.
  • camera.png Take a screenshot: The command takes a screenshot from the active view at the current zoom level and without the user interface.
    • In the 2D: the screenshot contains the selected 2D layers with the selected basemap, the active annotations with their labels, if displayed.
    • In the 3D: the screenshot contains the selected 3D layers with the selected background color, the active annotations with their labels, if displayed.
  • focus_on_gps_position.png Show my current position: (only available in 2D) It shows the user's current position. A pop-up message from the user internet browser might ask to allow Pix4Dcloud to track the user's location.
  • focus_on_selection.png Center Map: It allows to center the map/model onto the centered/default point of view.
  • zoom_in.png Zoom In: It allows to zoom into the map/model.
  • zoom_out.png Zoom Out: It allows to zoom out of the map/model.

Layers details

The user can specify details and settings for the different output and annotation layers and their items.

 
Note: The name and the tags associated with the layers can be used to filter the Layers tab when searching for a specific layer or item.
