Switzerland: Pix4D, the industry leader in professional drone mapping and photogrammetry software solutions, is launching Pix4Dreact, the essential 2D fast-mapping software tailored specifically to the needs of public safety personnel and first responders.
Year on year, an increasing number of natural disasters, man-made conflicts and other crises are affecting people around the world. The security threats for population centres, infrastructure, assets, and organized events are growing in volume and complexity.
Taking time to deploy and expensive to operate, aircraft and helicopters may not always be readily available or equipped to capture images. Drones are already used to provide powerful visual information that reduces response time and increases safety, but many lack fast-mapping capacity. Teams on the ground need quick and reliable aerial insights to plan and deliver successful operations in remote, complex and often unsafe environments.
In response to this need, Pix4D has developed Pix4Dreact to be the optimal 2D fast-mapping desktop software for public safety, emergency management, humanitarian aid and disaster response organizations.
“I have used Pix4Dreact with a large number of images from the field and I have been impressed by how simple and fast it is. This software can be of great value to the humanitarian aid community in need of a simple yet powerful mapping solution that can work everywhere, especially where internet is not available” adds Joseph Mulhausen, WeRobotics’s Head of Drone Data (Switzerland).
“Our vision is for Pix4Dreact to become the go-to tool when time is of the essence and internet connectivity is not available,” says Timothy Chapuis, Business Development Manager at Pix4D. With a software interface that has key features to enable teams to easily process, compare, annotate and export maps, “Our objective is to provide emergency responders on the ground with access to critical information needed to take quick action to protect and save lives,” adds Chapuis.
