Airbus Ground Control Points

Get the Highest Level of Precision for Your Data

GCPs - Highly accurate 3D coordinates

Airbus Ground Control Points are essential for accurate ortho-rectification of aerial, optical satellite imagery and drone data, for precise localisation of ground features and landmark detection.

Airbus Ground Control Points represent a specific geolocation of an object on the Earth’s surface, with geolocation accuracies up to 10cm in horizontal (2D) and vertical (3D) directions. These measured objects are mainly infrastructure features such as lightning poles, traffic signs, fences, and other notable elements e.g. on buildings. The corresponding 3D coordinates are automatically calculated based on spaceborne radar imagery The points can be used to link with corresponding elements in optical imagery or with mobile mapping data to improve or validate geo location accuracy of these data sets.

What our Customers Say

"We are amazed with the accuracy of the Airbus GCPs and that we can harmonise them so well with other data sources. Without the GCPs, we would not be able to complete this huge project in the allotted time frame."
