Pix4D has announced the beginning of four projects it says reflect is vision of the future of the photogrammetry and geospatial communities.

Machine learning point cloud classification – Working with Pix4Dmapper 4.0 machine-learning tools for photogrammetry applications allows users to classify 3D point clouds into categories like buildings, roads or vegetation.

Pix4D’s user certification program will allow users to benchmark their skills and technical knowledge of drone mapping photogrammetry. Also, officially-certified users can get recognized with an official Pix4D certificate and a digital badge to display on their website and LinkedIn.

Enterprise Solutions integrate drone mapping into the user’s operations and permit building drone-based data applications using the Pix4D photogrammetry engine to create high-quality 2D maps and 3D models quickly from images.

Higher Education Solutions is a program where Pix4D offers student semester licenses to help scale drone data education.
