Pix4D Streamlines Drone Image Processing with Pix4Dfields Launch
Pix4D is announcing Pix4Dfields, software that the company claims is the first fully dedicated product to give users fast and accurate maps while in the field, with a simple yet powerful interface fully dedicated to agriculture.
When Pix4D first decided to create a fully dedicated product for agriculture, the idea was to go beyond the research and development and create a product that actually understands agriculture. In July 2017, Pix4D opened a new office in Berlin fully dedicated to do exactly that: Understand the agriculture industry, listen to their users, and create a product that caters to all the main agricultural practices.
Equipped with a new fast processing that provides accurate and instant results and an easy-to-use interface with tools tailored to agricultural workflows, Pix4D’s users will be set to cover everything from simple to complex scenarios.
Essentially, the idea behind Pix4Dfields originated from two observations:

- the need to produce accurate, repeatable measurements of crop health;
- and the need to produce results efficiently and rapidly in the field, while performing more detailed analysis in the office.
Both of these factors are essential to support decision making of the farmer, agronomist or the breeder.
“Our solution fits the needs of the agriculture industry and we believe Pix4Dfields will become a staple tool, just like a meter is for a construction site worker”, Christoph Strecha, Pix4D CEO.
Pix4Dfields is currently available as a closed beta, which is being opened to select users to test it and give feedback. The product will evolve in a fast pace with new and updated features being added with every new iteration. Pix4Dfields is currently available for macOS only, next iterations will include Windows support as well.
