Powerful Accuracy with just 1 – 3 Ground Control Points

Microdrones customers asked for a system that could deliver excellent results with a handful of ground control points. We listened.

mdMapper1000PPK fills an important niche for customers who may not be ready for DG, and are willing to set up 1 – 3 ground control points for their projects.

And when your business, projects or services expand to require DG, this system is easily and affordably upgradeable via a DG READY firmware update.
