Alternative and accurate geolocation routines not working in 4.8.1

I have a DAT file that is smaller than my number of images (turns, takeoff/landings cut out). I then disable within Pix4D all the images that are not in the DAT file. In step 1, standard works but with alternative or accurate geolocation the processing fails. In previous versions I used this workflow many times to take advantage of an easy way to remove the turns etc and to utilize our platform which has high end GNSS/IMU hardware.

Is anyone else experiencing and issues like this? Or know what could possibly have changed?

The error for the alternative is: “[Error]: Error e0046: Processing failed. Only 0.645695% of the images have geolocation.” Which doesn’t make sense since it’s actually 64.5695% or 390 out of 604 images.

The error for the accurate geolocation is: “[Error]: Error e0900a: Cannot export point cloud in LAS/LAZ format. There are no points.” Which doesn’t make sense since I only have step 1 checked.

Thanks for your help and input on this.

Hi Mark & Scott,

We would need more details to provide assistance in the most efficient way. Could you please send us the following?

▸ The quality report (.pdf format): …\project_name\1_initial\report\project_name_report.pdf
▸ The project log file (text file): …\project_name\project_name.log
▸ The project file (.p4d): …\project_name.p4d


Have you tried creating a new project using only the images that are georeferenced?

If you feel comfortable posting a Dropbox link to the images and .dat file, I’ll try it on my end.

thanks my issue has been fixed.
