About this workshop


This Pix4Dmapper In-depth workshop will introduce you to best practices for capturing RGB images and creating, managing, analyzing, and sharing Pix4Dmapper projects. Learn how you can produce accurate 2D and 3D georeferenced representations of reality, including orthomosaics and 3D models, acquire accurate geometric measurements, and share your deliverables with stakeholders. A series of hands-on exercises will demonstrate how to get you up to speed faster.
