Mapping a better future

“It is still possible, using a wide array of technological measures and changes in behavior, to limit the increase in global mean temperature.”

- United Nations, Sustainable Development Goals

We know the climate is changing. But in order to do something about it, the change needs to be mapped.

From tracking melting glaciers in rural Kyrgyzstan, to counting the cost of storm damaged crops in Puerto Rico, to mapping chimpanzee nests in Tanzania, Pix4D software and aerial mapping is already helping scientists and citizens prepare to meet the climate crisis.

We want to help you make a difference. Pix4D's climate contest includes a cash prize and free access to our powerful photogrammetry software to empower changemakers to get their program off the ground.

It's free to enter, and open to any individual or organization, anywhere in the world.
