RMS Error

I’ve been doing a road mapping of 2 km long road. I used Pix4dsurvey with very high overlap and a few GCPs (5), DJI Phantom 4 Pro drone.
After a second step of processing data in pix4d mapper (point cloud and mesh), my quality report showed a red exclamation sign (big rms errors for some GCPs).
What is the reason for this?


Can you please share with us your quality report?

Thank you for the Quality Report.
The error of Ground Control Points (GCPs) is greater than 2 times the Ground Sampling Distance (GSD) may indicate that the GCPs were not correctly integrated into the dataset.
