Why Is The Quality Report for the Cloud in XML Format?

… and how do I view it?


I uploaded a project last night from pix4d desktop and the quality report results are in XML format. I don’t know how to view it like I would the pdf that is generated with the desktop version. I can’t download the project files because they are too big to zip …

I see the issue although I can’t resolve it myself as it’s in the cloud. In the log file it states that the PDF conversion utility failed to start:

Hi Daniel. The cloud can sometimes have problems with large projects and this issue usually occurs when the image count is over 1200. I have generated the PDF manually and will send it to your account email. I would suggest disabling ortho preview in step 1 processing options if you don’t require it as this can help improve stability.

Thanks a lot for the response!

No Problem. Happy Mapping!
