Photogrammetry is a technique that allows to convert 2D images in a 3D model, in which you can make accurate measurements.
The data can be used to create maps, 3D models of buildings or objects, volume measurement, area monitoring, ...
Pix4D is the leader in photogrammetry production based on drone imagery. Pix4D Mapper allows you to generate an orthophotomosaic, a height model and a 3D point cloud, but also many extra products.
* Why should I follow this training module?
Pix4D is the most user-friendly and efficient software for accurate measurements.
It allows surveyors, but also other users to make measurements based on the images taken from the air.
Using Ground Control Points or RTK GPS, it is also possible to obtain absolute accuracies.
* For who?
Surveyors, drone pilots, scientists, farmers, photogrammetry experts, archaeologists, cartographers, engineers, nature experts, persons in charge of inspection, public safety, R&D, defense, mine-clearing, real estate, construction, virtual reality, energy production, cultural heritage, etc ...
