DRONES DE OAXACA
collaborates with Geo Nomad
(www.geo-nomad.com), which has
a long history in surveying,
topography, geodesy and aerial
GPS services are performed by
GeoNomad to establish the
precise horizontal and vertical
control (ground truthing) using
GPS and GNSS high-end
equipment from the Swiss brand
Ground control points (GCP)
The signs to be seen in the pictures
from the drones are semi-permanent,
plastic blanked or painted, if possible,
on asphalt or cement. The signals are
always placed at ground level, not on
buildings. With this we guarantee the
best correlation between ground and
In this way we do the so-called
"ground-truth" and reduce errors,
increasing the accuracy of the final
product. Depending on the requirement
we use GPS or GNSS through high
precision equipment. We do this in
collaboration with Geo Nomad
