Pix4Dfields 1.5: Compare results, synced across devices

Achieve consistent and comparable results with Pix4Dfields 1.5 throughout the growing season and synchronize your projects between devices.

All crops change over time.

Understanding your crops’ natural rhythm can help you make the best decisions for seed placement, nutrition, and water or fertilizer application. Recording and comparing the changes can help you better understand your crop needs and prepare for the future.

That just got easier with the updated Pix4Dfields 1.5.

Radiometry in digital agriculture

Radiometrically correct values are useful for monitoring and assessment of crop conditions. When it comes to drones and sensors, radiometric correction is required to be able to compare images taken at different points in time, under different weather conditions and to compute reliable index values in the software.

Pix4Dfields 1.5 comes equipped with a new radiometry module which includes support for automatic target detection. Improve your data quality across flights, no matter the conditions.

Introducing data sync

When more than one stakeholder is involved, streamlined and effortless collaboration is essential. In precision agriculture, that collaboration usually happens between the stakeholders in-field and in-office.

Pix4Dfields 1.5 comes with data sync functionality which connects your projects across devices, taking your data from the field to the office.


Pix4Dfields Data Sync

As an example, when in-field data has been collected* you now have the option to sync the project when you are connected to the internet. In the office, another colleague can synchronize the desktop software and seamlessly access the project with the freshly-collected data from the field and continue with the in-depth analysis of the project.

*Data sync between a tablet and desktop currently only available with ParrotFields.
