Okay here I go,
First, I’m new to drone mapping so I’ll try my best with the terminology, second English is not my first language so bear with me
So I have captured an area with GCP points on the ground. So I have the basics covered there, I think.
I have coordinates for the GCP points but in the Ground Control Point Interface I loose the plot with the conversion from the ‘South Africa Lo System’ to the UTM system
I know the UTM where I need to convert to is, WGS84 UTM 36S
So my text file looks like this before I import it:
WGS84 UTM 36S
GCP1 87069.548 2757317.034 1224.312
GCP2 87136.539 2757239.324 1216.892
GCP3 86991.957 2757143.721 1232.984
GCP4 87054.578 2757109.373 1241.562
(I only have 4 points for now)(I would like to at least plot these 4 points on the correct position and on the next map I will have 5+)
opendronemap’s Ground Control Point Interface does pick up there are coordinates in the text file and plots the 4 points on the map, but on the wrong location.
I have converted the points to decimal degrees but no success, I am totally lost at the moment.
Any help would be much appreciated.
Thank you for the awesome community and forum. I have gained tremendous insight from here already…
