  • Course details

    Pix4D is a leader in small unmanned aerial system (sUAS or "drone") photogrammetry, building software that enables users to analyze complex image data and create orthomosaics and 3D models, all from photographs. With a drone, a camera, and the powerful processing engine in Pix4D, the science of photogrammetry is accessible to just about anyone. In this course, you can learn the basics of using Pix4D. Instructor Paul Tice explains how Pix4D pairs with different drones and cameras, and then shows how to program simple 2D missions for your drone with Pix4Dcapture. He then shows how to prepare for flight and retrieve the data and imagery once your drone has landed. In the last few chapters, Paul dives into Pix4D Desktop, where he shows how to process your data and produce outputs such as point clouds, 3D maps, and models. Plus, learn how to deal with large projects and turn the power of Pix4D onto architecture, engineering, and construction (AEC) data, such as 3D building scans.

  • Drone mapping

    - [Paul] Drones seem like fun toys to some, but did you know that you can build a robust business around this technology? In fact, drone work is a significant part of my business and keeps my employees employed full time with no end in sight to clients requesting this service. It's one thing to fly a drone around, but it's entirely another thing to be able to produce something that brings so much value and is so specialized that a successful business can be built around it. I'm talking about drone mapping, and in this course, you will learn the fundamentals of using one of the most powerful drone mapping software platforms in the world, Pix4D. Pix4D is a powerful photogrammetry software. It's tool set allows for mapping projects from built objects to agriculture and terrain, and it can process thousands of images into usable and measurable 3D models for a wide variety of industries. In my LinkedIn Learning course, I dive into the Pix4D tools that will bring the power of Pix4D to life,…
