Custom Coordinate Systems and RTK Drones
« on: February 25, 2023, 12:41:37 PM »
Surveyors often use custom coordinate systems or at least a scaling factor to adjust from grid to ground. We recently purchased the DJI M3E with the D-RTK base. I thought orientating with ground control point and selecting local would take care of this, but getting large vertical errors in validation points. Has anyone else found a solution to this?

I typically go to a project before the surveyors and layout the GCPs where I want them and fly the project. The Surveyor then comes and shoots GCPs and his property corners at the same time. What is the best workflow for RTK drones like the DJI M3E?
