My firm has been using Pix4Dmapper for several months and have had pretty good success with it. Right now the majority of our time on a project is spent cleaning up the classification of the points because lots of the buildings end up being classified as ground, or vehicles get classified as ground or road, etc. We typically go area by area and manually select the points and reclassify them but this is a pretty cumbersome.
One of the biggest helps would be be able to select the points by color so that for example, we can select all the bushes which are typically green (we do a lot of work in the desert so they stand out from the dirt) and then classify them as vegetation. In doing a search online, it looks like Pix4Dsurvey has that ability, and we haven’t used that program at all so we are looking into trying that.
My question is can you import and export the point clouds and their classifications between the two programs? For example, could we create the point cloud in mapper and do the point classification in that, import that point cloud into survey to be able to select by color, and then take it back into mapper? If that isn’t possible, can this be added as a feature?
