PIX4Dmatic, similarly to PIX4Dmapper, is intended for accurate and photogrammetric processing for aerial and terrestrial projects. This article describes the similarities and differences between the two products in detail.

PIX4Dmatic is ideal for corridors and datasets with more than 5000 images with standard RGB camera resolutions such as 12MP, 21MP, 42MP and has no limit on the size of images. Furthermore, PIX4Dmatic fully supports the terrestrial PIX4Dcatch workflow with LiDAR and RGB images processing, as well as a fusion of both point clouds.

In the following sections, we are comparing the PIX4Dmatic Large scale and corridor calibration template with the PIX4Dmapper 3D Maps template.
The calibrate step and densify steps are faster in PIX4Dmatic compared to PIX4Dmapper.
PIX4Dmatic generated a DSM 82% faster than PIX4Dmapper, and the orthomosaic generation was successful even for large projects.
PIX4Dmatic processed a dataset with 5294 images almost 70% faster than PIX4Dmapper.
