PIX4D MAPPER essentials


A specialization module is best followed in combination with a PRO XL module (or if you already have proof of Specific).


Photogrammetry is a technique for converting 2D images into a 3D model in which accurate measurements can be made. You can then use that data to create maps, 3D models of buildings and objects, volume measurements, monitoring of areas, etc… Pix4D is the market leader for photogrammetry production based on drone images. The software allows you to create an orthophoto mosaic, elevation model and 3D point cloud.

Why should you take this course?

From the beginning, PIX4D goes hand in hand with surveying. PIX4D is undeniably the most user-friendly and accurate software for these applications. Pix4D makes it possible to measure from images. Ground control points allow for precise measurement.

Target audience

Land surveyors, aerial surveyors, drone pilots, scientists, farmers, photogrammetry experts, inspections, public safety, R&D, archaeologists, cartographers, engineers, defense, demining services, nature experts, real estate, construction and building, virtual reality, energy producers, historic preservation, mappers, cultural heritage, etc…
