PDF3D and Pix4D Come Together To Offer Geospatial Community 3D PDF for UAV Data

Share Article

As Pix4D continues its rapid expansion as one of the leaders in aerial image processing software, the latest release of Pix4Dmapper features 3D PDF technology from the experts at PDF3D.

The InterGeo 2014 conference in Berlin marks the anniversary of a fortuitous meeting between Pix4D and PDF3D which, one year ago, has bought the highly anticipated release of Pix4Dmapper software. Today, Pix4Dmapper includes PDF3D’s 3D PDF conversion.

Both companies have been making great strides in the geospatial arena in recent months and, with this latest collaboration, orthomosaics, DSMs, DTMs and point clouds produced by Pix4Dmapper can for the first time be converted into multiple page 3D PDFs.

“This new feature in Pix4Dmapper is very valuable for our users who mostly convert aerial images collected with light-weight UAVs into geo-referenced orthomosaics, surface and terrain models, point clouds and more. Adding 3D PDF conversion into Pix4Dmapper allows users to preview GIS data in animated PDFs and to share them easily and quickly with anyone they choose”, explains Christoph Strecha, CEO of Pix4D.

Ian Curington of PDF3D added, “We were delighted to have met the Pix4D team last year at InterGeo. PDF3D has been developing PDF conversion products for geo-information for the past couple of years and our two core products, PDF3D ReportGen and PDF3D SDK now have some of the most powerful Geospatial PDF features available. By making these features available to Pix4Dmapper users, we’ll foresee interesting collaborations as the industry continues to look for ways to automate workflows and improve communications on platforms everyone can access for free.”

The latest releases of both Pix4Dmapper and PDF3D ReportGen will be on show at InterGeo 2014. To find out more, visit http://www.pdf3d.com and http://www.pix4d.com.
