How Will Pix4Dmapper Change The Way You Do Business?

Drones are fantastic tools for such a wide range of industries, from construction to real estate, marketing to education, agriculture to emergency services. But knowing what to do with the sheer volume of data a drone can capture can be intimidating. Creating clear visuals from drone images can take a long time, and be a complex process. Unless, of course, you use Pix4Dmapper.

Pix4Dmapper: The Industry Standard (Whatever Industry You’re In)

Since launching in 2011, Pix4D has become a buzzword amongst experienced engineers using drone data. The company has developed several sector-specific packages, such as the Agri version for precise agricultural applications.

There are several reasons why Pix4D has become a leader in drone data processing:

1) The software is adaptable to any industry – there’s no limit to the application

2) Fast processing compared to its competitors – show clients the visuals on a faster timescale

3) No specialist equipment is required – the software can process images from consumer-quality cameras

4) Wide range of mapping results – Whether you need 3D point clouds, orthomosaic maps, exportable contour lines, 2D and 3D models, digital surface models or volume calculation of stockpiles… the list goes on. Continue reading “How Will Pix4Dmapper Change The Way You Do Business?”

Drone Surveys: A Major Port Case Study

A survey was commissioned by a major port authority in the UK for a fuelling jetty used by a global oil major. The organisation wanted to have a direct comparison between traditional hydrographic survey techniques and drone-based survey, to ascertain whether this can be met by drones for their future needs.


The survey site was not a straightforward one, because the security and safety standards of the site meant even getting access to conduct the survey was a complicated process. Prior to visiting the site, a full risk assessment had been successfully submitted.

Upon arrival on site, extensive ID checks were carried out before a safety briefing. It’s elements like this that any commercial drone pilot needs to take into account when planning a project: the ID and safety checks took more than two hours to complete. If not adequately factored in the survey window may turn out to be too short to accommodate. Continue reading “Drone Surveys: A Major Port Case Study”

Yuneec Tornado H920 Drone Review

The Yuneec Tornado H920 drone is marketed as a multi-rotor aerial photography and videography platform designed for professional use, and with a price tag to match!

For a truly professional drone that simply does what you need it to do reliably and without a lot of problems, the right drone can be worth its weight in gold; but does the H920 live up to its promise, or are buyers left disappointed with its performance and quality where it counts? We’ve made it our mission to find out. Read on to find out more. Continue reading “Yuneec Tornado H920 Drone Review”

Information-rich, intelligent 3D models are capable of spanning the infrastructure’s entire lifecycle, from the initial planning stages through to operation and maintenance.

Civil engineering professionals can enjoy a clearer understanding of project performance by maintaining more consistent data and responding faster to change. Continue reading “Why Civil Engineers use 3D Mapping”
