Emlid, the EU-based manufacturer of Reach GNSS receivers, announces the launch of the Pix4D & Emlid Scanning kit.

The kit combines advanced photogrammetry with RTK precision for quick data capture when documenting trenches and as-builts, performing volumetric measurements, and enriching aerial data with terrestrial scans. All this by using a smartphone, the PIX4Dcatch app, and the Emlid Reach RX RTK rover.

The newly released PIX4Dcatch app is at the core of the software part of the kit, enabling precise scanning for both photogrammetry and LiDAR projects. The hardware part features the Emlid Reach RX RTK rover, which is equipped with an ergonomic handle and accessories.

Emlid Reach RX is natively integrated with PIX4Dcatch and provides real-time positioning via NTRIP. To begin scanning, simply select Emlid in the RTK settings of PIX4Dcatch and add your NTRIP network credentials.

The integrated solution doesn't require additional setup or surveying skills—anyone on the team can use the kit, ensuring effective data collection as they move around the asset.
