With Pix4DFields you can achieve an intuitive representation of your fields that helps you scout and identify issues faster. Specify the desired Ground Sample Distance (GSD) for a more or a less detailed output. Used in these applications with the likes of Digital scouting, crop protection & insurance can all be view in the GeoTIFF. Pix4DFields allows you to use a predefined list of vegetation indices like NDVI or use custom index formulas to better understand your crops. You can also use Pix4DFields to create custom zones with information from vegetation index maps.
You can review all your Data created in Pix4DFields in one PDF report for easy sharing and collaborating. With the use of a CSV report you can aggregate all the statistical information you need in a .csv export for easier trial plot management.

What is Pix4Dfields?
Pix4Dfields is a product by Pix4D. An advanced agriculture mapping software for aerial crop analysis and digital farming.
How does Pix4Dfields work?
Pix4Dfields uses a direct-to-orthomosaic photogrammetry pipeline optimized for fast processing of smooth terrain from drone imagery. By focusing on this specific domain Pix4Dfields provides high-quality maps processed in a fraction of the time, allowing immediate analysis while still on-site using a laptop computer.
Is Pix4Dfields available for macOS and Windows?
Yes, Pix4Dfields is available for both macOS and Windows.
What is the recommended computer requirements for PIX4DFields?
- CPU: Intel® Core™ i3 or AMD Phenom processor (or faster)
- RAM: 4GB RAM (or more)
- Display: 1024×768 display resolution (or higher)
- Hard disk: 4GB HDD free space (more for large datasets)
- SSD with 4x dataset size free space.
- Operating system:
- MacOS: macOS Catalina (10.15) (or newer)
- Windows: Windows 10 (64 Bit).
How many computers can be used with the same account?
Each Pix4Dfields license is linked to a Pix4D account. Pix4Dfields can run on one computer at a time, but the license is floating and can be used to log in on any number of computers.
Are the inputs and outputs of Pix4Dfields compatible with other Pix4D software?
Yes, it is possible to import the exports from Pix4Dmapper (and other software) into Pix4Dfields and vice versa.
Can I use Pix4Dfields with no internet connection?
Yes, Pix4Dfields is specifically designed to convert images into high-resolution maps, with no cloud or internet connection required. However, note that before using it on a new computer, you will need to activate your license. While connected to the internet, log into your Pix4D account (or create a new one) and select a license so that you can use Pix4Dfields. The software will store this license on your computer until it expires, so you can work offline.
Note: Data sync and the connection to John Deere Operation Center features require internet connection. For more information: Data sync
Which cameras are supported in Pix4Dfields?
Pix4Dfields processes RGB images, multispectral images, and the thermal band of the Altum camera.
The following list contains a sample of supported cameras in Pix4Dfields.To see the complete database, download the following file: Camera database of Pix4Dfields
If the camera is not listed in the article, check the camera and its parameters in the Pix4Dfields camera database. If the camera parameters are the same as the ones in the database, Pix4Dfields will be able to read the images. If the camera is not listed in the article, but it is in the camera database, it is recommended to test processing the images in Pix4Dfields using the trial version of the software.

Important: If a camera is not supported in Pix4Dfields, it is possible to process the dataset if a file with the internal camera parameters is provided.
Note: If an RGB or multispectral camera is not supported in Pix4Dfields, it is possible to process the dataset if a file with the internal camera parameters is provided.
Does Pix4Dfields support ground control points (GCPs)?
Pix4Dfields does not support ground control points (GCPs). If you need to use GCPs for improved accuracy and reconstruction, we recommend that you use Pix4Dmapper.
Can Pix4Dfields process oblique imagery?
Pix4Dfields supports processing nadir images captured with a drone camera pointing straight down. If you want to process oblique images, we recommend that you use Pix4Dmapper.
What is the recommended flight pattern?
For agriculture purposes, a single grid is recommended. We suggest avoiding double grid flights.
What is the recommended flight altitude in Pix4DFields?
Assuming a relatively flat scene, a flight altitude between 60 and 100m normally gives good results. We do not recommend low-altitude flights (5-20m), they may result in artifacts in the orthomosaic. Please also keep in mind the legal flight altitude at your location.
What is the difference between a map generated in Pix4Dmapper and Pix4Dfields?
Pix4Dmapper takes fine-grained local variations in altitude into account when building maps, whereas Pix4Dfields is optimized for representing terrain, using a coarser ground model. If you have a lot of 3D structure in your maps, Pix4Dmapper will give more accurate results for the areas with the 3D structure. However, Pix4Dfields will still give good results on any surrounding terrain.
Does Pix4Dfields include the same radiometric correction module as Pix4Dmapper?
Both products use the same radiometric correction module to correct individual input images. Pix4Dfields uses a different (faster) method to stitch the images into an orthomosaic.
