Which image acquisition app can I use with Pix4D's software?

Pix4D's software is image acquisition app agnostic. That means PIX4Dmapper, PIX4Dcloud, PIX4Dmatic, PIX4Dreact, and PIX4Dfields can process images taken virtually from any application as long as they are of good quality and overlap.

PIX4Dcapture Pro, PIX4Dcapture, PIX4Dscan, and PIX4Dcatch are the official Pix4D image acquisition tools that support limited drones, cameras, or hardware.

  • PIX4Dcapture Pro is the drone flight planning app for aerial data acquisition for 2D and 3D mapping and modeling. The app includes generic missions such as grid, orbit, and cylinder and the advanced mission for cell towers and transmission towers. With its autonomous missions, this easy-to-use solution is a scalable product with professional outputs, including RTK compatibility. For more information about the supported drones and cameras, visit Supported drones, cameras, and controllers - PIX4Dcapture Pro
  • PIX4Dcapture is a free drone flight planning app for optimal 3D mapping and modeling. For more information about supported drones and cameras visit: PIX4Dcapture supported drones, cameras, and controllers.
    Note: PIX4Dcapture is no longer available so recommend using PIX4Dcapture Pro.
  • PIX4Dcatch is a free mobile application for ground 3D scans from iOS and Android devices. For more information: FAQ - PIX4Dcatch.

Apart from the above-listed image acquisition apps, many image acquisition applications can be used for capturing the images and then processed using the Pix4D's software.
