Pix4D’s rayCloud is an iconic interface that connects original images to the 3D reconstruction. Add and edit your ground control and manual tie points to improve your project accuracy without searching for each point in an endless list of images. Simply select the point’s approximate location in the point cloud and refine it’s position in the corresponding images.
You can manually mark images or have the software automatically mark your images for you.
Reduce click errors with automated outlier detection
Apart from making it easy for you to find where each point is in your images, we also inform you when an image is marked incorrectly.
In version 3.3, if you mark a GCP or MTP incorrectly a pink circle will appear in the image to inform you that the corresponding mark is likely inaccurate. Automated outlier detection minimizes the chance that human error introduces inaccuracies into the final results.
Pix4D always aims for accuracy and efficiency. In version 3.3, processing for Step 1. Initial Processing is faster than ever before.
Save time with faster initial processing
Upgrade now to experience an average 23% faster processing time for this initial processing step.

The origins of photogrammetry and 3D mapping can be traced back to 1480 when Leonardo da Vinci developed the concept of perspective and projective geometry. Techniques have come a long way since then, with both the technology and software becoming more accessible and affordable.
Our Emergency Services have been some of the earliest adopters of 3D mapping techniques and are leading the way when it comes to documenting our world in 3D to improve our safety and security.
