Orthomosaic geotagged with elevation data

I want to know whether the generated orthomosaic contains the elevation data or not. And if yes, in which other software I can visualize the elevation data.

When we open orthomosaic in Pix4D it shows the lat lon along with altitude, but in other software like ArcMap and Global Mapper, only lat lon information is displayed.

Hi Bikram,


The Orthomosaic only contains XY coordinates (you can see elevation in pix4d because it is compositing the data)


For elevation, use the DSM/DTM.  In QGIS or Autocad, you can generating a point by clicking on the ortho layer, and pull the elevation from the DSM/DTM later.
