Combining projects from different sources



We are starting to use terrestrial scanning on some close range project and want to know if we can combine these point clouds with a pix4d point cloud in one project?

Reason the scanner cannot collect data from the air and important info is getting lost in the process. 



At the moment, it is not possible to combine a point cloud from a terrestrial laser scanner and a point cloud generated with photogrammetry in Pix4D software. 

The following is possible with external point clouds: 

Note that it is possible to combine two point clouds generated by Pix4D, e.g. one project with terrestrial images and a project with images from a drone. For this the merging procedure described in this article can be used:
