is it possible to import a point cloud and complete the 3D mesh generation in Pix4DMapper


When I build a 3D mesh of a city starting from photos taken with a DJI drone in the sky, the results are not completely great with Pix4DMapper but it is the same with other photogrammetry tools: walls are especially warped, …

Is it possible please in Pix4DMapper to import a point cloud captured from the ground with a LIDAR or built from the ground with another camera ?

I think that in order to correctly reconstruct a building, it is necessary to capture it both from the sky and from the ground.

I do not know how to do this with Pix4DMapper. Usually, we import photos and select start.

Thanks for your answers


Hi @jmcieutat,

The perfect software to combine pointclouds created from different tools would be PIX4Dsurvey.
In the article below you can find all the information needed to unify different pointclouds from various projects:

Let us know if you need further information.

Thank you very much
