Hello everyone. Anyone knows why the difference in basemap quality in Matic vs Mapper?. It can improve?
The basemaps are delivered by an external provider and are mainly used for reference. Here is a screenshot comparing the same area with PIX4Dmapper (left) and PIX4Dmatic (right).
Despite showing the exact same scene, some resolution and color differences exist. Unfortunately, this is outside of our control and depends on the basemap provider. Nevertheless, we have been in touch with them about this issue to find a solution. Could you share with us if the resolution difference of the basemap impact the project crucially? Could you provide me the coordinates of your project area to reproduce this issue?
Meanwhile, I suggest you can the Map base map (attached image).
PIX4Dmapper uses Mapbox as provider and PIX4Dmatic Maptiler, that explains the difference.
Maptiler is a smaller company and is still growing their satellite data pool. We have been feeding them feedback on areas that need a better quality. Can you indicate locations (even approximate) of where the map quality is lacking? That way I can forward that to the provider. Note: last time I reported such an issue to them, they said they’re preparing a big update, so I’m hopeful to have better base maps soon!
