Ground Control Points vs. Real Time Kinematic

With aerial photogrammetry, there are two most commonly used types of referencing – GPS metadata in the photos and ground control points in the scene. GPS metadata can come in the level of RTK precision, while ground control points (further GCPs) are always made with survey-grade equipment.
