June 29th, 2021 - Improved integration with PIX4Dcatch

What's new

Projects uploaded from PIX4Dcatch and processed with depth data have several important improvements:

  • Sky segmentation: improved point cloud generation to have less noise from sky and water in the 3D reconstructed model
  • Quality report: a quality report is available for new projects processed with depth data
  • Better performance: in terms of processing speed and number of images to be processed

Improvements

  • When exporting a screenshot from the UI, the name of the file is now the name of the project.

Bug fixes

  • Fixed the issue where the orthomosaics produced with PIX4Dfields which were uploaded to PIX4Dcloud did not have a transparent background
  • A vertex could not be deleted in a polygon and or in a line
  • The profile view did not show the cursor in the editor when hovering with the mouse over the profile

May 11th, 2021 - New live measurement computation

Changes

  • New live measurement computation. More information here.

Bug fixes

  • Fixed the issue where, in some projects, line and polygon annotations were slightly moving away from the original coordinates (only while drawing them).

April 27th, 2021 - Italian and Spanish translations

What's new

  • PIX4Dcloud and PIX4Dcloud Advanced are now available also in Italian and Spanish. For more information about supported languages: PIX4Dcloud - FAQs

April 15th, 2021 - Bug fixes and improvements

Improvements

  • Display the name of markers when hovering over them. More information here.

Changes

  • By default, the project coordinate system is selected in the coordinate system selector

Bug fixes

March 22nd, 2021 - Improved orthomosaic and DSM tiler, bug fixes and improvements

Improvements

  • New and improved orthomosaic and DSM tiler. For more information: Improved Ortho and DSM tiler on the cloud.
  • Added feedback message for upload limits (7 GB for the GeoTIFF orthomosaic and 1 GB for the 3D Mesh OBJ).

Bug fixes

  • GCPs layer and lower bar coordinates are kept in the base unit (not converted from meters to kilometers or feet to miles).
  • Improved usability of the Virtual Inspector on small screens.

February 10th, 2021 - GCPs layer, bug fixes and improvements

What's new

  • [PIX4Dcloud Advanced] GCPs layer display. When a project is processed with AutoGCPs on the cloud, there is a new layer in the hierarchy which contains the GCPs and check points that have been automatically detected (more information in GCPs layer). This applies to projects created from the release date.
  • Unit selector: New selector for defining the units used in the project when displayed in the 2D/3D view. For more information: Improved units display in PIX4Dcloud.
  • Support of overlays for arbitrary (user-defined) systems: You can find more information in How to work with arbitrary systems on PIX4Dcloud.

Improvements

Bug fixes

  • Fixed the issue with the Virtual Inspector not working properly with some cameras
  • Fixed the issue where in rare occasions a Point Cloud was completely colored in purple while in elevation color mode. Now it should always display elevation color mode properly
  • Fixed the issue with the volume computation using custom as the base surface. The custom elevation previously could not be typed in feet

December 8th, 2020 - Bug fixes and improvements

Improvements

  • Mobile device improvements (more information here)
    • Changes in the 2D/3D user interface
    • Improved mobile support for editing points, lines and polygons so that they can be selected more easily on touch screens
  • Projects uploaded from PIX4Dmapper 4.6 version can be processed
  • Sub-cm precision for measurements and annotations: especially for PIX4Dcatch projects where images are taken very close to the object and the GSD (Ground Sample Distance) can be very small

Bug fixes

  • Fixed the issue where an Overlay was not displayed properly when the site had projects with different coordinate systems. (Note: For existing Overlays which have already been imported and are not displayed for this reason, they should be imported again)
  • Fixed the issue where the Show my current position icon was hidden by the orthomosaic layer. Now it is always displayed on top of the orthomosaic and DSM

November 5th, 2020 - Bug fixes and improvements

Improvements

  • The volume annotation is disabled when the project has no DSM and therefore the volume cannot be calculated
  • [PIX4Dcloud Advanced] New messages warn the user when using the AutoGCPs detection functionality if:
    • The wrong GCP file has been imported

  • [PIX4Dcloud Advanced] Improvements to handle larger overlays

Bug fixes

  • Fixed the issue for when zooming in very quickly meant PIX4Dcloud did not display the highest ortho resolution
  • Fixed the issue for when sometimes the red and blue marks of the import overlay feature were not displayed

  • New icon for projects which have been shared but have no outputs

Bug fixes
