PIX4Dcatch's Site localization function enables the ability to work in a local coordinate system and transform points between the local and global coordinate reference systems. With an exported project and .wkt file, a site-localized project can be imported and processed with PIX4Dmatic.

If not already done, export and save the project and WKT files from the mobile device.
- From the PIX4Dcatch project on the mobile device:
PIX4Dcatch Project dialog.
- Tap the dropdown menuin the top right of the PIX4Dcatch Project.
- Tap Export all data.
- Export and save. This file will contain the image files. (plus DepthMap.tiff and Confidence.tiff files from LiDAR-capable Apple devices)
For more information: How to export PIX4Dcatch projects (iOS/Android).
- Export and save the Site Localized WKT file:
PIX4Dcatch computed site-localized Point collection.
- From the corresponding PIX4Dcatch site-localized point collection tap .
- Export and save.
For more information: Site Localization - PIX4Dcatch.
- Open PIX4Dmatic.
- Create a new project and import the image files/folder.
PIX4Dmatic, create a new project dialog.
For more information: Create a project - PIX4Dmatic.
From the new PIX4Dmatic project:
PIX4Dmatic Select the GCP coordinate reference system (CRS) dialog.
- Tap the in the Tie points tab.
- Select the Import CRS file bubble.
- Select the site-localized point_collection_name.wkt file for import.
- Tap .
With the WKT file successfully imported, the project will display the localized point collection
name as the project's coordinate reference system in the lower left corner of the PIX4Dmatic window.
With an imported .wkt file, process as usual. If GCPs need to be added, they should be measured and marked in the local reference system. The points collected should be different from those used to localize the project.
