I am a surveyor and recently purchased the P4P+ for the purpose of 3D mapping. I would love any suggestions from other licensed surveyors as to what works best for them. I would like to produce  linework as well as topography.

If you aren't using one of the commercial services that does it for you, the Program most use is Agisoft Photoscan

Thanks I'll look into that. Im not interested in a  commercial service that does it for me. A few more things:
1. Do you produce linework by tracing over the photo?
2.  Is it subscription based or do you actually buy and own the software?
3. I use autocad for drafting surveys do i export a surface from the processing software or just contour lines?

Linework?
The program can generate contour lines which can be exported as .shp, .kml or .dxf files
2.  Is it subscription based or do you actually buy and own the software?
You buy the program (but it isn't cheap
3. I use autocad for drafting surveys do i export a surface from the processing software or just contour lines?
Sorry, I don't use Autocad so I'm not sure.
Google might help?

The linework I'm referring to would be edge of pavement line, edge of concrete line, fence lines, ect...
Contour lines are part of the topography

Hello,
You can process high resolution Digital Elevation Models and generate seamless Orthomosaic Maps using our free RAPID product. It functions with up to 150 images for free (any use).
More details here: https://dronemapper.com/software_downloads/

I would recommend the beta version as it allows higher resolution DEM processing and blended Ortho functionality up to 150 images.





Thanks,
JP
