How to export to Atlas from Pix4D

IMPORTANT: In order to proceed, you will first need an Atlas account as well as the MicaSense Uploader software. If you are new to Atlas, you may wish to read our guide: Getting Started in Atlas

If you already have an Atlas account and the MicaSense Uploader, you're ready to export your processed results directly to Atlas from Pix4D:

  • Start by processing your data in Pix4D, generating an orthomosaic.  See How to Process RedEdge Data in Pix4D for details.
  • Generate a reflectance map from the Index Calculator tab
  • Under the Export options on the right panel in the Index Calculator, press the Upload button. You will need an Atlas account as well as the MicaSense Uploader software to proceed.


  • The MicaSense Uploader opens. Log in if you have not already.
  • The orthomosaic (TIFF) and DSM are automatically uploaded to Atlas.
  • After upload, it takes a few minutes to prepare the data for use in Atlas. You can check on the status in the DataHub of your Atlas account.
  • If you have not yet defined a farm or field for this data, create these from the DataHub tab in Atlas
    • Select the image set
    • press the Create new field button.
    • Draw your field around the mosaic you just uploaded, which should be visible in the map view.
    • Give the field a name and save it. 
  • Once you have created a farm and a field, go back to the DataHub and press the Process button for the image set you have uploaded. 
  • You can view your image by pressing the View button for the image set or going to the field from the Farms section.
