Achieving High Accuracy with Mapping Drones
In this webinar you will learn:
- How absolute accuracy is achieved & what drone parameters affect this
- What accuracies today’s operators really achieve in the field
- What absolute accuracies are necessary for different types of project
- The benefits & challenges of moving from GCPs to direct geo-referencing
- The challenges of working in local vs. national coordinate systems
