Measure the altitude , determine height

Hello everybody ,

 

I have made a 3d map of my plowed field and I want to determine the altitude of certain points of the field . I need accurate coordinates beside the DSM model of some points . And also ,can I measure the slope between  2 selected points.

Best regards

Hi, 

You can check the coordinates of a specific point of your field in the rayCloud view. Either you can select a pixel of the point cloud and check its coordinates on the right hand side as below: 


Or you could create a Manual Tie Point (MTP) at a specific point and then check its computed positions (once you have Process > Reoptimize the project):

As for the slope, you could use polylines (https://support.pix4d.com/hc/en-us/articles/202560309) to make measurements and deduce the slope from it, but there is no tool made to directly measure the slope.
