Keep getting w0024 warning (GCP far from images) when using correct coordinate and file structure is correct

  Tim Durham Today at 08:55

I am continuing to get an error message when importing GCP’s into the project. I have set the default WGS84 coordinate selected for everything but still getting the error.  I input the GCP coordinates in Google Earth and the image showes they are within the flight area.  The columns are correct (not reversed).  I have checked and checked and can’t figure this one out.

I have upload to dropbox 
Photo files from Phantom 4 Pro 
Geotag file for the 146 photos 
Geotag file for GCP’s. (1 GCP and 2 checkpoints) 
Screenshots of my settings and error messge. 
Screenshot of GCP’s on Google Earth so that you can see they are in fact located within the flight path of the images.

If anyone has any ideas please let me know.

GCP locations

Hi Tim,
The error is due to the wrong coordinate system of GCPs that you are using at the beginning of initial processing. The coordinates that you have uploaded have units in angle whereas the unit that is required is in the meter as shown in the figure below for the given coordinate system. That is why your coordinates are far from the actual location. 

The way to fix it is to change your coordinate system to WGS 84 as shown in the figure below.  I have tried that on my computer, and the screenshots are attached below.

Thank you very much!  I meant to sign in and let you know that solved it.  I am sorry that I missed that detail!  I started importing the GCP’s instead of manually entering them.  Have a great week!
