Pix4D is a pioneering developer of software tools that create professional-grade georeferenced maps and models from drone-captured imagery. Our mapping software is used in a wide variety of UAV (unmanned aerial vehicle)-driven industries, including surveying, construction, agriculture and real estate.

Our products combine to form a unique, complete workflow, from drone flight through to mobile, desktop and cloud technologies that can be adapted to your industry and your requirements.

Drone Mapping Software

Pix4Dmapper Pro

Drone-based Mapping Software

Pix4Dmapper software automatically converts images taken by drone, by manned aircraft or by hand and delivers high-precision, professional-grade georeferenced 2D maps and 3D models. The maps and 3D reconstructions are fully customizable.

Key outputs from Pix4Dmapper include:

3D Point Cloud

3D Point Cloud
Clean, laser scanner-quality 3D point cloud with limited-occlusion aerial perspective and low acquisition time.

Digital Surface & Terrain Model

Digital Surface and Terrain Model
Accurate, georeferenced digital surface and terrain model that can be integrated into your preferred GIS workflow.

Drone Image Volume Calculation

Volume Calculation
Volume calculation on a perfect representation of your stockpile, with adjustable base height and detailed view for more precise measurements.

Mapping Software Contour Lines

Contour Lines
Contour lines for a simplified representation of topography, which can be easily exported for further work.

Orthomosaic Drone Image

High resolution orthomosaic devoid of perspective distortion.

Drone Thermal Map Software

Thermal map
Radiometric accurate map displaying the temperature value of each pixel.

Mapping 3D Textured Model

3D Textured Mesh
Full 3D triangular mesh model with photorealistic texturing, for sharing and online visualization.


Drone Mapping Software for Agriculture

Pix4Dag is specialized drone mapping software that converts multispectral images into accurate reflectance and index maps, such as NDVI, and uses RGB images to generate high resolution orthomosaics. Pix4Dag allows you to easily integrate drone-based technology into your precision agriculture and aerial crop analysis operations, processing locally when and where you want.

Key outputs from Pix4Dag include:

Agriculture Reflectance Map

Reflectance Maps
Radiometrically accurate reflectance maps display your plant\’92s reflectance at specific bands, storing this information at the pixel level and giving you accurate analysis of vegetation health and the foundation from which to derive vegetation indices.

Index Maps (NDVI & NDRE)

Index Maps
Index maps (e.g. NDVI, NDRE ) combine information from the reflectance maps to highlight plant health differences that are directly or indirectly related to issues such as water stress, nutrient deficiencies or pests.

Drone Agriculture Orthomosaic Image

High resolution aerial orthomosaic maps made from RGB images, with corrected perspective and uniform scale, that give you geographic data from an aerial perspective.

Agriculture Drone Application Map

Application Maps
Application maps aggregate and visualize the values derived from your index maps. Maps can be exported as shapefiles for direct import into farm-specific equipment, allowing for later application in the field.

Software for Construction Sites

Pix4Dbim allows you to visualize, measure and verify as-built data of your construction site using flexible image processing options either on desktop systems or in the cloud. Deliverables can be analyzed and shared via a cloud-based server and compared to BIM (Building Information Modelling) as-design or schedule drawings.

Key outputs from Pix4bim include:

BIM Photorealistic 3D Model

Photorealistic 3D Models for Measurements
Generation of photorealistic 3D models for surface and volume measurements, contours, and general visualization.

BIM Comparison for As-Built vs As-Design

Cloud-Based Timeline
Cloud-based timeline for displaying collected 2D and 3D data, with annotation, measuring and sharing features.

BIM Cloud-Based Construction Timeline

BIM Comparison for As-Built vs As-Design
BIM comparison of as-built orthophotos vs as-design drawings, for easy spotting of construction errors. Schedule diagrams derived from the BIM application can be imported to ensure your project is on-track.

3D Models from Drone Imagery

Pix4Dmodel has been designed to allow you to start 3D modeling with your consumer drone. The software processes images automatically to create photorealistic 3D models from drone images. Pix4Dmodel will export fly-through videos and full-textured-mesh models for you to showcase on the web and on social media.

3D models can be exported in a variety of file formats to upload on Sketchfab and other online 3D-visualization platforms.

Drone Flight Planning Mobile App

Pix4Dcapture Drone Mapping SoftwarePix4Dcapture is a free companion mobile app that allows you to create drone flight plans for capturing image data. Projects and missions can be planned in advance or in the field, and individual flight missions or entire projects can be recreated for efficient future use.\

With Pix4Dcapture you can customize mission parameters, including altitude, image overlap, and more, or use mission templates tailored to creating an orthomosaic or 3D model. Post-flight, missions can be reviewed while still on site, before transferring the data to Pix4D desktop or cloud software for processing, analyzing and sharing.

Multispectral Sensor for Agriculture

Parrot Sequoia Multispectral Drone CameraSequoia is a multispectral sensor designed for precision agriculture that captures discrete wavelengths of light, including Green, Red, Red-Edge and Near Infrared, to help better determine crop health. With Sequoia, you can identify problem areas such as nutrient deficiencies and water stress, and optimize your pesticide input and crop yield.\

Sequoia features a quad-band sensor and RGB camera for superior multispectral accuracy. A fully-integrated sunshine sensor captures and logs the current lighting conditions and automatically calibrates outputs of the camera so measurements are absolute. The unit can be easily integrated into a wide variety of fixed-wing and multi-rotor drones.
