The First Crane Camera Solution for 3D Mapping
Revolutionize the way you collect as-built updates of your site with the Pix4D Crane Camera. Images are automatically collected during normal crane operation, then turned into 2D maps and 3D models in the Pix4D Cloud to be easily analyzed or shared online.

How It Works
Automated Data Collection
Images are captured automatically during crane operation, with camera sensors that detect crane movement to activate and complete data collection.
2D/3D accurate surveys for BIM
Images are automatically transmitted to the Pix4Dbim Cloud for processing. 2D and 3D deliverables are accessible on the cloud-based platform to be analyzed and shared. Results can be exported to BIM software to further analyze and verify the as-built.
Because data capture and processing are done automatically, costs and inconveniences are minimal, making frequent data collection possible. Taking images with the crane camera does not interfere with site work.

Webinar on demand
In a recent webinar, Pix4D, Liebherr and Losinger Marazzi (a branch of Bouygues Construction), teamed up to present the Crane Camera solution and explain how they use it on a daily basis to rapidly visualize the as-built situation, update project teams, check as-built vs. as-designed plans, document site progress, and verify the project schedule.
Key learnings from the webinar include:
- How the Crane Camera solution works – and why it’s a viable alternative to drone mapping.
- What deliverables you can get with the Crane Camera.
- How to use and integrate the deliverables into your construction/BIM workflow.
- How to easily implement and test the solution on site.
