Setting Ground Control

More in depth information on ground control can be found here.

General considerations

  • GCPs should be shot and marked with high precision and accuracy

    • The visual representation of the GCP should be completely unambiguous and easily identifiable from the drone pictures

  • If using a tile or something movable as a GCP, be sure it is anchored to the ground so it cannot easily be moved.

  • Be sure you set your ground control only in areas you plan on flying directly over.

  • Try to put GCPs on low and high elevation points in the project if possible

  • Set a minimum of 5 GCPs per flight battery used (Non RTK drones only)
