Camera Positioning System
A generic PPK (post processed kinematic) camera positioning system that integrates with most cameras on any UAV or manned aircraft. PPK produces high accuracy GNSS (GPS plus Glonass) camera positions to increase photogrammetric mapping accuracy and reduce ground control requirements.
The key to accuracy in any mapping or 3D modelling project is control. This can be either GCPs (ground control points) visible in the photos, or CPs (camera positions) where each photo was taken. Enabling your mapping data acquisition with accurate CPs can reduce or eliminate the need for GCPs, saving on ground survey crew time and cost.
