I’m trying to export the LAS point cloud to Civil 3D but the output coordinate system from Pix4D is not where I’m expecting it to be. The local coordinate system from the planset is:
Northing Conversion: 2624946.571 (local to state plane)
Easting Conversion: 1312508.894 (local to state plane)
When I use those factors and adjust my GCP they line up where I expect them to on the Pix4d map and I’m able to use the basic GCP editor. Since the drone captures everything in state plane this is all fine and well for the processing. My problem is the output of the LAS, I manually enter them into the site calibration in Pix4d but the results don’t make sense.
I use the following in the site calibration:
Northing Conversion: -2624946.571 (difference from state plane to local)
Easting Conversion: -1312508.894 (difference from state plane to local)
Scale: 1.000100964 (inverse from original scale)
I’m sure I have made a mistake somewhere since the point clouds are not falling within my project in Civil 3D. Any help would be appreciated.
