Lausanne, SWITZERLAND, 02 AUG 2017. 3DR, makers of Site Scan, one of the leading drone data platform for engineering and construction, announced they have integrated the Pix4D photogrammetry engine as their core processing software to enable customers to get processed data 3X faster.
Site Scan customers can now process 5X more photos at once—2,500 in total.
The addition of the Pix4D processing engine marks one of the biggest improvements to Site Scan yet: it will help 3DR customers take their drone data to another level, creating more accurate and detailed results—like orthomosaics, digital elevation models, and point clouds—than ever before.
“We’re thrilled to work with 3DR,” said Christoph Strecha, Co-Founder and CEO of Pix4D. “They’re a leader in using drones for reality capture in construction and engineering, and Pix4D’s best-in-class processing will help their customers get the best results possible.”
“With the combination of the Sony R10C camera and our newly improved processing engine, Site Scan can deliver results that consistently rival LiDAR and traditional surveying when it comes to accuracy,” said Chris Anderson, CEO of 3DR. “This marks the next step in drones becoming an essential tool on jobsites across the world.”
