SHP export enhacements

PIX4Dcloud has improved the way the annotations are exported in SHP format.

  • They are exported both in WGS84 and project coordinate system.
  • Z value is kept in all types of annotations.
  • All files are named using the name of the PIX4Dcloud annotation layer.
  • All annotations are unique elements.

PIX4Dcloud users can easily export their annotations and open them in any GIS software.

Some GIS software packages like QGIS suppor the ZIP file directly.

Each of the ZIP files will contain 12 files for each of the annotation layers:
