Hey Nate, I really appreciate the invite to help test pix4dsurvey.
I’ve spent a little time in it this afternoon and I have a handful of suggestions:
Differentiate layers and your imported point clouds. Theyre both in the same bar and it can get extremely cluttered very fast. My suggestion would be to use overarching categories. I have a rough edit mocked attached.
Another suggestion would be to change the mouse controls to mimic Pix4Dmapper. Being able to use the mouse wheel click for orbit, and roll for zoom is extremely nice.
Will we be able to work off the smaller DSM files opposed to the point clouds? This could make working with the data a little easier.
Basic feature extraction would be huge. Being able to select a beam, wall edge, or even top/bottom slope and having P4S automatically create the polyline for you would be huge.
Quick contour generation, as well as cut/fill maps + the ability to bring in tin surfaces for comparison would also be huge.
The ability to do fly-throughs with the cad lines and polygons drawn would also be handy, especially if we could add notes.
Right now it looks like a good base, but as it sits now, I dont see any benefits with this build over the cloud viewer.
As I go through and use it more I’ll be sure to add to this discussion! Thanks again for the invite!
