Pix4D Training (Las Vegas December 2019)

Description

Pix4D software allows users that do not possess specialized GIS-grade equipment to rapidly create relatively accurate models. This Pix4Dmapper workshop focused on an sUAS (drone) capture workflow, will introduce key Pix4Dmapper workflows and output.  This two-day session will showcase optimal camera settings, flight planning techniques, MTP identification, placement, safety considerations, and application-specific best practices.  Ultimately, you will learn how to best capturing RGB images and creating, managing, analyzing, and sharing 2D and 3D representations of reality.  A series of hands-on exercises will demonstrate how to effectively work with the Pix4Dmapper solution.

Expect some time in the field as we will put aircraft up and capture images/data from a local scene, and then stitch the data together in the classroom to best demonstrate best practices and procedures for optimal Pix4D output and delivery.

Attendees bring their own computers, and we’ll provide the Pix4D licenses for the duration of the training.

Please do not bring your own drone, we will have one for use with the class.

 

Objectives

  • sUAS setup for producing data for stitching
  • Produce accurate 2D and 3D georeferenced representations of reality, including orthomosaics and 3D models
  • Acquire accurate measurements
  • Using Manual Tie Points/MTP  and Ground Control Points (GCPs) for great accuracy
  • Share your deliverables with stakeholders

Agenda

  1. Introduction
  2. Multi-ray photogrammetry
  3. Collecting ground control points
  4. Planning a drone flight with the Pix4Dcapture mobile application
  5. Creating, processing, and measuring in a Pix4Dmapper Desktop project
  6. Creating, processing, and measuring in a Pix4Dmapper Cloud project
  7. Sharing Pix4Dmapper Desktop and Pix4Dmapper Cloud deliverables

 

This is a two-day workshop.

Night sUAS (Drone) CSI Demonstration – RENO

FoxFurySundance Media GroupPix4D, and public safety personnel have created a demonstration workflow for aerial capture of virtually any type of night forensic scene. This team will setup a mock crime scene investigation, by creating a homicide scene in the North parking lot at Peppermill Resort. The purpose of this free demonstration is to showcase how drones (UAVs / sUAS) are used to capture forensic evidence at the scene, in the dark, and use the data captured to create a map in 2D and 3D for law enforcement use.

FoxFury CRI Lighting Solutions will be used to illuminate the surrounding area to aid with photo and video capture of the crime scene. The SMG team will pilot an Autel Evo and a Yuneec H520 to capture color-correct aerial images to be processed in Pix4Dmapper LIVE onsite into a 2D map. The SMG team will share how the placement and level of lighting are key components to the workflow as well as using Ground Control Points to assist in accuracy for the post-production process in Pix4D.

 

This workflow is relevant for virtually any type of night scene capture.

 

Cameras are permitted. Please; no photography during drone flights.

With special thanks to the City of Reno for their support in presenting this demonstration and to the Peppermill Resort for hosting our demonstration.

Night (Drone) CSI Demonstration/training with FoxFury & Pix4D – Idaho Falls

This FREE EVENT is brought to you by:                                

FoxFury and Sundance Media Group will demonstrate how to achieve a forensic scene capture in the dark, with a drone, capable of 2D and 3D mapping and modelling.

These same techniques may be applied to virtually any type of night scene capture.

The team will set up a crime scene and will fly the scene with both night-vision and standard RGB cameras to demonstrate the viability of wide-variety of non-specialized cameras in dark crime scene capture environments.

Once the scene has been photographed by the drone, the team will process the data captured with Pix4D software live on-site, for rapid verification of image capture and area integrity.

Please register so that we are best able to accommodate the attendees on site.

Cameras are permitted. Please; no photography during drone flights.
