Merging improvements

Seamlessly integrate multiple overlapping projects, aerial and terrestrial, regardless of their capture time, and utilize precision workflows with Ground Control Points (GCPs) or Manual Tie Points (MTPs) to ensure the highest merging accuracy. This update introduces the flexibility to merge into an existing project or create a new one, allowing you to review and adjust changes before finalizing the merge.

Quality Report improvements

The enhanced Quality Report provides in-depth insights into your dataset's processing, highlighting calibration quality and helping you to pinpoint any issues, this ensures reliable and trustworthy results. The DSM and orthomosaic were also added for higher data coverage in the quality report.

Virtual Inspector

Now, when you share your projects to PIX4Dcloud, you can utilize the Virtual Inspector tool for detailed analysis and documentation of your PIX4Dmatic projects, enhancing project flexibility and third-party usage.
