Event description

Description

Kickstart your workflow by learning about Pix4D's recommended best practices when capturing and processing aerial and terrestrial images. This is a technical workshop organized in partnership with Aerial Metrics for public safety professionals using drones to document vehicular collisions. The workshop will introduce you to creating accurate reconstructions and improving final results.

By registering for this workshop you are eligible to receive a 50% discount on the Pix4D Certification Exam.

Level

Audience: Law enforcement or public safety professionals who are beginning to leverage drones and digital imaging for mapping and 3D modeling work.

Content: We will cover topics of basic to intermediate level and explain how to get the best results using the available processing options in Pix4Dmapper.
