Today’s question is about mapping applications. How does Maps Made Easy compare to Pix4D? Is it worth spending so much after Pix4D?
Our caller, Tim from Vancouver is an enterprising drone pilot. Because Pix4D is offering just a short 2 week trial, Tim is wondering if he can use Maps Made Easy instead. Is this a good idea? Or should he stick to Pix4D – the gold standard of mapping applications? We suggest some great hacks via which Tim can make the most of his Pix4D trial. Tune in for some Tips and Tricks which are sure to be of great help to you. Thanks to Tim from Vancouver for the question. Fly Safe!
