The World's Largest Drone Accuracy eBook

Uncovering the Optimal Specs for Accurate Data Collection

At DroneDeploy, our customers often ask: “What should I do to generate accurate topographic data?” This leads to more questions:• What are optimal flight settings? (altitude, overlap, etc.)• How many GCPs and checkpoints do I need to generate accurate data?• What is the optimal image/GCP ratio for best accuracy?• How should I layout my GCPs/checkpoints to improve accuracy?• How many GCPs should I use when flying with the Phantom 4 RTK?• How many GCPs are too many?We wanted clear, data-driven answers, so we organized one of the most extensive aerial photogrammetry studies, using the P4 RTK, created to-date: 1 mission, 85 control points, 75 processed maps, and over 1100 acres in Douglas County, Colorado.
