I fly with RTK drones, are GCPs needed?

  • Updated

RTK drones can greatly improve the accuracy of GPS coordinates for georeferencing the imagery collected by the drone camera. When using such a system, please ensure that RTK GPS data is being actively stored in the imagery metadata.

For RTK drones, we require a minimum of 2 GCPs in the field (1 GCP for checking location + 1 GCP as a control).
