[Release July 3rd 2020] Template selection and more

After Pix4Dcloud and Pix4Dcloud Advanced has been released, the cloud team is being busy and has added some new things in the software.

NEW FEATURES

  • Template selection

Pix4Dcloud and Pix4Dcloud Advanced allow the user to select which processing options template to use, either 3Dmaps or 3Dmodels, for now.

The 3Dmaps template is recommended for aerial images acquired using a grid flight plan and it generates point cloud, 3Dmesh, orthophoto and DSM. The 3D models template is recommended for aerial oblique flights or terrestrial images and it only generates a point cloud and a 3Dmesh.

There is a third type of processing template, which can be used in the cloud, i.e., Ag Multispectral, which is automatically selected if the images were captured with a multispectral camera and will produce an NDVI image.

More detailed information about the processing templates can be found here.
