NEW FEATURES - Template selection and AutoGCPs for crane projects
Different type of computation via template selection
Pix4Dcloud and Pix4Dcloud Advanced allow the user to select the type of computation they want to use. The “processing template” tab presents four different ways of processing, which can be selected depending on the type of flight, the camera and the required outputs. The user can also choose “Quality” to get the highest accuracy or “Rapid” to get faster results with lower resolution.
More detailed information can be found here .
The tab “AG multispectral” is specifically for multispectral cameras and produces an NDVI map as a result. For more information on multispectral cameras and which ones are supported, please see this article
AutoGCP alignment for Pix4Dcrane projects (only for Pix4Dcloud Advanced customers using Pix4Dcrane cameras)
The special characteristics of the sites captured with Crane Cameras mean that in order to detect the GCPs automatically, the standard AutoGCP algorithm released on June 9th had to be refined to adapt it for this use.
From now on, not only will the projects flown with drones automatically detect the GCPs but also the ones captured by Crane Cameras.
This new alignment based on GCPs will also allow the crane customers to specify the output coordinate system of their sites.
More information about the crane camera solution can be found here.
Message informing about the type of alignment used (Only for Pix4Dcloud Advanced customers using Pix4D crane cameras)
The editor (2D and 3D view) now includes three different messages to inform the user about the alignment of the site:
- GCPs aligned data set -> for sites with auto detected GCPs
- 2D aligned dataset -> for sites with no GCPs or sites where no more than 3 GCPs were found automatically
- Low alignment confidence -> for sites with no GCPs and there are not enough images to guarantee a good 2D ortho alignment.
More information about the alignment and the different displayed messages can be found here.
Pop up Message when the GCP size has weird values. When the GCP size is lower than 20 cm or larger than 2 meters, a message is displayed to verify that it is correct.
New icon for projects which have been shared but have no outputs
Fixed the issue when the altitude was not properly computed in some projects until the user refreshed the browser. The right value is now displayed from the beginning.
Fixed the issue with the 3D embeds not working for anonymous users
