Feature Attributes support?

Good Morning,
First off, I’ve played with Pix4d Survey a few times over the last few years and never saw much to pull me in, but it’s come a long ways since the last time I used it! I’m using it to digitize an industrial mining site from photogrammetry & lidar datasets and it’s been a joy to work in the last couple of days.

I have a script set up in Global Mapper that converts points, lines & areas to coded points (for Carlson Field 2 Finish), for our typical survey workflows. The layer options in Pix4d Survey make it pretty easy to prepare all the digitized features for this process, but we normally have a catch-all point layer for “Misc Map Notes” that include comments/observations from digitizing. I’ve been adding markers to a “NOTES” layer in Pix4d Survey, and adding my comment as the marker name. As far as I can tell though, this feature name isn’t included in the export ( tried geojson, SHP and DXF). Is there any way to transfer comments like this over to the rest of my workflow, other than just making every marker on it’s own layer? Thanks.

It’d be nice if the marker’s “Unk Utility” was transferred over as the feature’s name at least. Even better if it was stored as a static attribute…or if Pix4d Survey supported feature attributes in general.

Hi @Derrick_Westoby1 ,

Thank you for reaching out to Pix4D technical support and for sharing your detailed feedback.

Your feedback is greatly appreciated; thank you.

I passed it on to our PIX4Dsurvey product team. Even though we cannot guarantee that a solution will be implemented, I can assure you that every piece of feedback is internally evaluated at Pix4D.

I also moved your request to the feature request page of the community, so that other users can “vote” for this request. Don’t forget to vote for your request at the top-left corner of the thread.
