Industrial zone and agriculture area download dataset

The goal of this project is:

  • Import images into Pix4Dmatic.
  • Import and mark ground control points (GCPs).
  • Process the project and generate the dense point cloud, DSM, and orthomosaic.

Pix4Dmatic_demo_dataset.jpg

The dataset with 1469 images (senseFly, AeriaX) and 8 GCPs contains an industrial zone, suburban houses, and the surrounding agriculture area. The dense point cloud, images, and GCPs are displayed in the 3D view. 

 
Information: The example project of 1469 images is a subset of a larger dataset of 10615 images. The image acquisition of the whole dataset was done using 4 eBee X - senseFly drones flying simultaneously. The flight planning software eMotion was used.

Urban area download dataset

The goal of this project is:

  • Import images into Pix4Dmatic.
  • Import and mark ground control points (GCPs).
  • Process the project and generate the dense point cloud, DSM, and orthomosaic.

Pix4Dmatic demo dataset 100 images

The dataset with 100 images (senseFly, AeriaX) and 3 GCPs was flown over a town. The dense point cloud, images, and GCPs are displayed in the 3D view.

 
Information: The example project of 100 images is a subset of a larger dataset of 10615 images. The image acquisition of the whole dataset was done using 4 eBee X - senseFly drones flying simultaneously. The flight planning software eMotion was used.
