About this workshop


This course will help you get a better understanding of concepts, tools, and workflows that extend beyond the scope of the PIX4Dmapper Essentials course. A series of hands-on exercises and lectures will demonstrate how to achieve the best results by deviating from one of the most common image processing workflows.
