PIX4D SURVEY FEATURES
Import projects from PIX4Dcloud, PIX4Dmatic, PIX4Dmapper or any .las or .laz file.
Create a point cloud from images in PIX4Dcloud, PIX4Dmapper or PIX4Dmatic, and drag and drop the .p4d or .p4m file to PIX4Dsurvey.
Laser scanner or LiDAR
PIX4Dsurvey works with multiple point clouds at the same time formatted as an .las or .laz file.
From point cloud to TIN in a fraction of the time
Automate the creation of spot elevations and allow drastic simplification of the number of point cloud points. With a click, use this Grid of points to model the ground with a TIN.
Extract the same points you would use in the field with Smart Grid – it doesn’t create any data, but instead reads the terrain class for locations of elevation change, just like your field crew would take spot elevations along breaklines.
Next up? Take that set of points & breaklines and create a DTM in LandXML format that exactly reflects the points you have told it to use. Now you are good to go in your CAD or GIS!

Can I purchase one month at a time?
Yes you can Purchase Monthly Licences only when you need them through us. If you only need a total of 5 monthly licences in one year, that’s all you pay for.
Get in touch to order your first licence.
PIX4D Survey Monthly Licence – €280.00 less VAT
Is there a Yearly Licence for PIX4DSurvey?
Yes there is. The yearly licence starts its 365 day count down once the licence becomes active. One month before expiry is due we will receveie an email let us know that your licence is due for renewal we will get in touch with you to ask would you like to renew the licence.
The Cost of a yearly licence – PIX4D Survey Yearly Licence – €1,680.00 less VAT.
What is PIX4Dsurvey?
PIX4Dsurvey bridges the gap between photogrammetry and CAD. It does so by providing access to the original images and the point cloud through Pix4D’s rayCloud™ to vectorize and extract points, polylines, polygons and catenaries for a shorter time to delivery. Additionally, PIX4Dsurvey supports very large datasets or a combination of many datasets with an optimal experience.
The software expands today’s possibilities by enabling the combination of photogrammetry and third party point clouds such as terrestrial laser scanners.
What is the difference between PIX4Dsurvey, PIX4Dmapper and PIX4Dmatic?
The main difference is that PIX4Dmapper and PIX4Dmatic are primarily a photogrammetry processing software while PIX4Dsurvey is a tool for the vectorization of geospatial data.
Together they cover the complete workflow for transforming the acquired information (images, point clouds) to a deliverable suitable for CAD or GIS software.
Can PIX4Dsurvey process data?
PIX4Dsurvey does not calibrate the photogrammetric projects or generate dense point clouds. This is done by photogrammetric software PIX4Dmapper and PIX4Dmatic.
On the other hand, it is possible to post-process dense point clouds in PIX4Dsurvey by running Terrain filter and Grid of points processes.
What is the difference between PIX4Dsurvey and CAD software?
The main difference is that PIX4Dsurvey supports the seamless import of PIX4D projects with accurate results and images.
Unlike CAD software with its focus on design, PIX4Dsurvey provides vectorization and extraction tools and is optimized for handling and manipulation of very large datasets and point clouds.
Can PIX4Dsurvey extract terrain points and generate a DTM?
Yes, PIX4Dsurvey can classify point clouds into terrain and non-terrain classes and generate a representation of the ground surface by only using the terrain points. The workflow is the following:
- Terrain filter to classify selected input point clouds into terrain and non-terrain points.
- Grid of points to automate the creation of spot elevations. Using the Smart type creates points only where changes in terrain occur.
- TIN is a seamless set of triangles that represent a surface. When using only terrain points the generated surface is a DTM.
The TIN can be exported as a surface in LandXML file format which is fully compatible with CAD software.
Can PIX4Dsurvey replace the CAD products I typically use?
No. PIX4Dsurvey makes it easier to move from photogrammetry to your CAD product.
Can I import the vectorized data into CAD software?
Yes, PIX4Dsurvey exports vectorized data that can be seamlessly imported into CAD or GIS software using .dxf and .shp format.
You can import .dxf files into PIX4Dsurvey and use them as a reference and a base for vectorization. Snapping on existing vertices is supported so you can really take advantage of the preexisting data.
Do I have access to PIX4Dsurvey if I have other PIX4D licenses?
PIX4Dsurvey is not included in the PIX4Dmapper or PIX4Dmatic licenses. You can purchase it through Survey Drones as we are Irelands Reseller of all PIX4D Products.
