VOLUME MEASUREMENT - USING DJI PHANTOM 4 PRO DRONE

CAN ONLY DJI PHANTOM 4 PRO DRONE BE USED TO CAPTURE ACCURATE VOLUME OF STOCK PILE.?

IS THERE ANY HARDWARE REQUIRED?

 

PLZ REPLY.

Yes you can just use the drone. GCP´s are needed for higher accuracy. I’ve done same project using GCP´s and without them and had only minor differences. 

If you are covering large area then I suggest you to use GCPs

And always remember to check your quality report

ok thanks. also in the output we get e.g. in the results contains   VOLUME = 128 +/- 8  means   VOLUME = 128+8 OR 128-8 OR WHAT IS THE CORRECT.

HI Mahesh,

Pix4D software is hardware agnostic, so you can use imagery from virtually any digital camera. The Phantom 4 Pro UAV is a very popular UAV due to the large 1" 20MP Global Shutter sensor.

I would refer you to the Support article “Error estimation in Volume calculation” & How Pix4Dmapper calculates the Volume? for a more in depth explanation of the the values the Pix4D reports.

Best Wishes,

Aaron Woods
