Pix4Dsurvey expands today’s surveying possibilities with:
– Seamless merging of photogrammetry point clouds and images, LiDAR and third party point clouds in a single project
– Optimized vectorization and extraction of essential information such as bottom and top of curbs and catenaries


– Import point clouds created with photogrammetry, laser scanners, LiDAR or other third-party tool (las or laz)
– Seamless import of processed PIX4Dmapper projects (.p4d)
– Seamless import of processed Pix4Dmatic projects (.p4m)
– Seamless import of processed and downloaded Pix4Dcloud projects (.p4d)
– Import 2D or 3D layers from CAD or GIS to add context
– Import 2D or 3D GeoJSON or Shapefile layers from CAD or GIS to add context
– Convert the coordinate system of any import into the project coordinate reference system

Processing Features

– See properties and measurements of any object
– Integrated shortcuts for faster navigation and vectorization
– See your project from multiple angles at once, vectorize seamlessly between views
– See your project with no distortion – facades are vertical, wires are straight, and you have a similar experience to looking at an orthomosaic
– Draw a section line and see it in a separate window in profile
– A set of tools to separate terrain and non-terrain point cloud points
– An evenly spaced grid of points, that are representative of elevation and can be exported
– Create a TIN using any combination of terrain layers, and restrict the edges of the TIN to the edges of the point cloud
– Create contour lines from the TIN, with the option to remove short loops
– Vectorise starting from images
– Select a reference and a file to adjust and automatically register (fit) the two together
– Create and measure the volume of anything, even against a wall or in a corner
– Find manholes, drains and poles based on images throughout your project
– Guided tool to detect all the faces of a roof, with slope and azimuth attributes for each face
– Guided tool to detect walls from any point cloud

Capture images or point clouds with a drone or any laser scanner.


Import data from other Pix4D software or a .las or .laz file to PIX4Dsurvey and combine multiple datasets into the same project. Work with both imagery data and LiDAR point clouds.


Generate a TIN to model the ground and create engineering-ready CAD vector files from point cloud data by extracting key elements of your project with PIX4Dsurvey.


Move from a lightweight point cloud to a model of your terrain. Use the Smart Grid, TIN, and terrain classification to get accurate, actionable results.


Open your simplified, accurate data in any CAD or GIS software with custom layers and properties that fit your existing workflow.

Beyond the point

Extract only the most relevant information to speed up and simplify your surveying workflows.

Vectorize anything

Use the combined power of images and point clouds to extract key elements from photogrammetry, laser scanning or LiDAR data. Survey curbs, building footprints, walls, catenary curves and more.

Time-saving benefit

Work 50% faster when you vectorize from point clouds and verify in images, while the Smart Grid saves 1,000s of clicks creating spot elevations.

CAD ready

Include layers and properties for a smooth transition to CAD or GIS and reduce file size when exporting your projects as vector files.

Volume measurements

Create and measure the volume of any object, even against a wall or in a corner, with fast, simple steps.

Extract key elements in 3D

Built-in vectorization tools

Vectorize your project using points, polylines, polygons and catenary curves with just a few clicks.

Measure volumes

PIX4Dsurvey offers intuitive tools for volume calculation of any object or space with straightforward steps.

Create surfaces

Model the ground with a TIN from points and breaklines to represent the topography of your project.

Unlock more data

Vectorize in 3D, edit in 2D. Survey complex objects only visible in images. Use colour selection to search for similar points in a defined radius.

Scale up

PIX4Dsurvey can handle billions of points. Work with as many point cloud files as you like in the same projects, including .las.

Easy export

Layers can be exported separately or together for a smooth transition to your preferred CAD or GIS software.


Your choice of point cloud

Import projects from PIX4Dcloud, PIX4Dmatic, PIX4Dmapper or any .las or .laz file.

Aerial data

Create a point cloud from images in PIX4Dcloud, PIX4Dmapper or PIX4Dmatic, and drag and drop the .p4d or .p4m file to PIX4Dsurvey.

Laser scanner or LiDAR

PIX4Dsurvey works with multiple point clouds at the same time formatted as an .las or .laz file.


From point cloud to TIN in a fraction of the time

Automate the creation of spot elevations and allow drastic simplification of the number of point cloud points. With a click, use this Grid of points to model the ground with a TIN.

Extract the same points you would use in the field with Smart Grid – it doesn’t create any data, but instead reads the terrain class for locations of elevation change, just like your field crew would take spot elevations along breaklines.

Next up? Take that set of points & breaklines and create a DTM in LandXML format that exactly reflects the points you have told it to use. Now you are good to go in your CAD or GIS!
