Share to PIX4Dcloud - PIX4Dfields



What is Share to PIX4Dcloud

Share to PIX4Dcloud is a feature of PIX4Dfields which makes it easy to share 2D layers over the internet with just a web link. It enables the connection of a PIX4dfields desktop project to the PIX4Dcloud.

An orthomosaic, DSM, and index layer can be uploaded to PIX4Dcloud with a valid PIX4Dfields license. All layers will be stored in PIX4Dcloud and a password protected URL link to the project will be provided after a successful upload. A shareable URL link can be generated from within PIX4Dcloud which can be provided to collaborators.
