Accurate, fast drone mapping on a new scale

Pix4Dmatic is designed to work with the latest generation of drones for professional applications and transforms your large number of images into accurate point clouds, DSMs and orthomosaics.

Bigger datasets, accurate results

Pix4Dmatic processes thousands of images while maintaining survey-grade accuracy, halving the processing time, without the trouble of splitting and merging.

Fully automated processing

Developed in close-collaboration with surveyors and mapping professionals to streamline your workflow: import, process and assess the quality of a project in just a few clicks, and move seamlessly from Pix4Dmatic to Pix4Dsurvey. 

Future-proofed for BVLOS

Pix4Dmatic is ready to support the large datasets generated by BVLOS* (beyond visual line of sight) drone flights.
  *Where legally permitted


Accurate 3D maps and models from thousands of images



Handling and processing large amounts of data is easy with Pix4Dmatic.
Get your results up to 50% faster, while keeping a survey-grade accuracy.



Ensure the accuracy of your project with GCPs, Checkpoints, or Manual Tie Points. Accuracy metrics are available in a dedicated tie points table and in an exportable quality report.



Pix4Dmatic supports the most frequently used vertical coordinate systems and their corresponding geoids.



Updates are released every three weeks in a new preview or stable version, ensuring you get all the latest improvements and features.

Full Feature List


Essential outputs, in a fraction of the time

without compromising accuracy

Dense point cloud

Generate dense point clouds for large areas. Each point of the point cloud receives the RGB value of the raster pixel that has the same location.
Export formats: .las



Create orthomosaics that are geometrically corrected such that the scale is uniform. They are color balanced in order to be visually pleasing.
Export formats: GeoTIFF (.tiff)


Digital surface model (DSM)

Generate a digital representation of all objects in the mapped area. It includes natural features as well as elevated objects, like buildings.
Export formats: GeoTIFF (.tiff)


Compatible with Pix4Dsurvey

Seamless export of processed projects into Pix4Dsurvey to transform point clouds into actionable CAD-ready data. Pix4D's proprietary .bpc file format is optimized for loading and manipulation of big point clouds.
Export format: .p4m

multispectral, GoPro, 360-degree, largeframe
add-on, etc.) images in .jpg or .tiff
Use images acquired by any camera, from small to large frames, from consumer-grade to highly
specialized cameras

Known or custom reference coordinate
system support in imperial or metric units
Select EPSG code from known coordinate systems or define your own local system
Camera exterior orientation support Optimize camera exterior orientation parameters starting from GPS and IMU input parameters
External point cloud import Import a point cloud from different sources, such as LiDAR, and use it to create a DSM and orthomosaic


Processing templates  Automate processing and generation of outputs by using standard or customized templates
Rapid Check with Quality Report Rapid processing template for a dataset quick check while still on site 
Camera self-calibration   Optimize internal camera parameters, such as focal length, principal point of autocollimation and lens distortions
Rolling shutter effect correction  Correct the warp of images taken with rolling shutter cameras (like GoPro, DJI Phantom 2 and 3, etc.)
