How to process Quantix Mapper

 Previous  |  Next 
 
Important: Quantix Mapper has two cameras one generates a Red/Green/Blue (RGB) image and the other generates Red, Green, and NIR (RGN) images. To process in Pix4Dfields, process these images separately. Create an RGB orthomosaic and an RGN orthomosaic (for NDVI analysis).

How to generate an RGB orthomosaic

1. Navigate to the directory holding the Quantix Mapper imagery (SD card or other location).

2. The images first need to be sorted into RGB and RGN images. There is a shortcut to do this in the ‘images’ folder of the Quantix Mapper project. To do so, click SortImagesForProcessing.bat and let it run when complete hit any key. This will add an RGB, RGN, RGB_QL, and NDVI_QL folder to be used in the next steps.

3. Open Pix4Dfields, start with a new project, select ‘Import folder’.

4. Navigate to the Images > RGB folder and ‘Select Folder’.

5. After importing you will be asked to select some processing options, select ‘Apply’ or if you want full resolution images uncheck all the orthomosaic size limitations, then click ‘Apply’.

6. When all images locations are loaded, click ‘Start processing’

How to generate NDVI and NDRE orthomosaics

1. To create the NDVI and NDRE maps you will need to load the Red, Green, and NIR (RGN) images to make a map. Start again by importing images.

2. Select ‘Import Folder’

4. After importing you will be asked to select some processing options, make sure rig relative calibration is off (1) or if you want full resolution images uncheck all the orthomosaic size limitations, then click ‘Apply’.

5. Once complete you can load boundaries & trim the RGN Orthomosaic for further analysis using the index generator. eleven.jpg
