Absolute and relative camera position in Quality Report

Hello! I wonder what diferent is in “absolute camera position” and “relative camera position” in Quality Report? How and with respect to what it is calculated?
Thank you!

Hi Aleksandra,

The absolute camera position relates to the position of the camera on Earth. This means that its accuracy depends on the GPS receiver, which usually provides an accuracy of a few meters.

The relative camera position is related to the movement of a camera in relation to the targeted object and the other cameras. This position needs to be optimized so that a correct reconstruction is performed.

Hope this helps.
