About this workshop

This course will help you better understand concepts, tools, and workflows in photogrammetry and PIX4Dmatic that extend beyond the scope of this course. A series of hands-on exercises and lectures will demonstrate how to achieve the best results with PIX4Dmatic. This course will teach you the fundamentals of photogrammetry in collision reconstruction and how to process a PIX4Dmatic project from the beginning to the end. Finally, the course will demonstrate to export your reconstructions for use in PIX4Dsurvey or third-party software.

You may be transferred to another date if the minimum number of attendees is not reached.
