Lausanne, Switzerland, [November 10, 2020]:
Pix4D, the industry leader in photogrammetry, today announces the release of a new application
product for ground image acquisition: Pix4Dcatch.
Pix4Dcatch allows users to easily create 3D ground models using an iOS mobile device. No need to be an expert, the user simply scans the area of interest with Pix4Dcatch. The application saves images with GPS positions. Compatible with recent iOS devices, but optimized for the latest iPad Pro and iPhone 12 Pro and Pro Max with LiDAR sensors, scanning is performed with real-time 3D mesh for scene completion feedback. This live feedback process enables a workflow that ensures optimal results. The images are then automatically uploaded to Pix4Dcloud for rapid generation of scaled and georeferenced 3D models and point clouds that can be measured, shared and exported.
Pix4Dcatch allows professionals in the construction, inspection and public safety sectors, among others, to save time and money, by giving them the possibility of expanding their commercial offer to include the rapid creation of accurate 3D floor models.
Christoph Strecha, Founder and CEO of Pix4D, comments: “Until very recently, capturing
Accurate ground data for 3D modeling most often required specialized hardware or add-ons, as well as professional expertise. The strength of Pix4Dcatch is to allow anyone using consumer devices to easily acquire the right earth data to digitize the space around them and turn it into accurate 3D models. It is the missing link in data acquisition and it complements Pix4D’s software solutions.
He adds, “Over the past few years, drones have become accessible to a wide audience. In response, Pix4D has innovated to launch Pix4Dcapture, a free mobile app that
has become a reference tool for drone mapping. Today, mobile devices are not only high-quality image capture tools, but are also becoming professional measurement tools, allowing Pix4D to leverage their use to deliver end-to-end workflows. to our customers.
Pix4Dcatch is a free trial. Download it now from the App Store.
