We’re trying to learn to use Pix4D in Senegal. Power supply is not very reliable here (several cuts a day) and the network is either slow, expensive, or both.
This makes using Pix4D local processing quite difficult, because when the computer shuts down, the whole step is lost.
I thought Pix4D cloud processing would be the solution to avoid that. But uploading over 3 gigs takes quite some time here, and the UI doesn’t allow to resume interrupted uploads. So the power cut problems still applies.
Last time we’ve been lucky and have been able to upload our dataset at once. But we forgot to check the first step (which had succeeded locally), so the whole upload was to be started over, and it failed already twice.
In the mean time, we’ve successfully and easily uploaded the whole image set on dropbox, which smoothly resumes upload when possible.
Would it be possible to allow to resume interrupted uploads, or, better, allow to provide data from dropbox ? That would really help us out here !
