How to use an RTK Drone as a GNSS Rover?

We explored the pros and cons of using an RTK drone and GNSS rover ground control points for accurate aerial photogrammetry referencing in another article. Not unexpectedly best results were achieved using both sources for referencing simultaneously. As we classified the RTK drone and the GCP device

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. In this
