point cloud accuracy

I would like to know if exist a report about the accuracy of the DENSE POINT CLOUD generated (see attachment). Maybe an .txt file or similar that contains the error of each point generated, and where can I found it.

Hi @mrosas1122,

There is no statistics delivered on the point cloud accuracy as it can be mainly derived from the image accuracy shown in the quality report in the sections:

" Absolute Geolocation Variance":

This table displays the percentage of geolocated and calibrated images with a geolocation error in X,Y,Z within a predefined error interval. There are ten predefined intervals between -1.5 and 1.5 times the maximum accuracy Amax of all images. If the percentage of images with an error lower than -1.5 × Amax or higher than 1.5 × Amax is big, the Accuracy values might not have been set correctly. Verify if the Accuracy of the image geolocation and the GCPs needs to be adjusted.

and
Relative Geolocation Variance”:

This table displays the percentage of geolocated and calibrated images with a Relative Geolocation Error between -1 and 1, -2 and 2 and -3 and 3. A high percentage of images with a Relative Geolocation Error lower than -3 or higher than 3 may indicate an incorrect value for the Accuracy of the image geolocation (given by the user). Verify if the Accuracy of the image geolocation and the GCPs needs to be adapted.

Hope this will help,
Best,
