Yes, all image data is processed automatically by selecting an asset type when uploading, and prior to scheduling for processing. There are currently 40 different asset types (and growing) so you can become very precise with the automated processing parameters when sending data to be processed. When processing is complete, you will receive an email with a link to login and review your project in the gNext platform – the link you received was a ‘share link’ that you can create and provide to others so they can access a model without a login.

Yes. Any project can be shared with others through an invitation. Permissions allowed are view only or edit capable properties.

There are a variety of price offerings depending on your needs. You can select either month to month or annual models (for additional savings), across several different feature and volume offerings. No long term commitment and you can cancel at any time. Please see the Plans page for more details.

gNext Labs supports and recommends Google Chrome and Firefox.

Nothing needs to be downloaded to use the gNext Platform. All that is necessary on your system is a supported web browser and internet connection.

Depending on the plan selected, the available model types available are PlanView, Elevation, 3D, Contour, Point Cloud and DTM.

Depending on the plan selected, the supported file export types are JPEG, DFX, GeoTIFF, LAZ and OBJ.

A view-only user is a named user in the platform who can see and access all projects they have been invited to. They are able to make measurements but cannot save them or make any changes to the project. This is the typical way to provide access to customers who have access to multiple projects.

A view-only link enables a user to access a single model (per link) without signing into the platform. They are able to make measurements but cannot save them or make any changes to the project. This is the typical way to provide ‘one off’ access to a contractor or single project user.

If you do not need change capability, then a view-only link is a very effective way to present a project.

An Admin user can invite other users to a project in addition to having full Editor user rights. An Editor can make modifications (save annotations, measurements, etc) but cannot invite other users to a project. We currently do not require registration of a specific computer with an account, relying on our customers to manage this process internally.

The Enterprise Entry level plan provides for enough data to process approximately 50,000 12MP images or 30,000 images 20MP images.

Either will work. The system will convert the GCP coordinates using the provided EPSG code into UTM (WGS84) to produce a model and geolocate it. If you use the orthometric height, internally the software will assume it is the ellipsoidal height for the conversion. Typically, the difference between both heights is a constant number, and therefore it would be like having just an offset on the height.

The uploader will continue trying to upload the files. At the end, if any file failed to upload, it will show a message and the uploader won’t start the processing. You can continue where you were, by going to the dataset section, clicking the three-dots button, then “continue uploading”. Then, you drop all the image files again, and the system will discard the ones that have been uploaded already.

The advanced “Folder Upload” feature is used to upload multiple models at once.  The Platform currently supports unique names for images within a single upload. If you are uploading two full folders of images for a single model, it is recommended moving all the images into a single folder, and then upload these images into gNext.

If you run into issues while moving the images into a single folder because of images having the same name, I would recommend renaming then in bulk using a tool like We are working to improve our product to cover for this scenario, as it seems to be a common obstacle users run into when using DJI drones and 1000+ images.

You can just upload it as an individual orthophoto.

Both 3D and 2D.

The terrain clamped tools are used for measuring surface-like structures, like stockpiles, and are used for computing stockpile volumes, areas, etc. They clamp to the terrain vertically. The vertical tools stay at the location of the measurement and are mainly used to make measurements on vertical assets like facades.

You can upload video from these file formats (P4, 3GP, AVI, FLV, SWF, MKV, MOV, QT, WMV, LRV, SRT), however, these videos are not used for photogrammetry/3D model processing.  All image annotation tools are also available to mark-up video frames and are instantly available for reports as well.
