Tested and trusted ground control solution for drone surveying
AeroPoints are the world’s only ground control points designed specifically for drones. The easiest and the most efficient way to make drone data survey-grade, AeroPoints are an essential part of every professional drone operation.
Rugged, lightweight and portable, AeroPoints work in any location, with any GPS enabled drone (including RTK), with any coordinate reference system and any processing software including, Pix4D and Agisoft, as well as our own Propeller Platform.
Manually creating ground control points can take hours, reducing the efficiency you get from drones. AeroPoints reduce this to minutes. With a simple one-button activation, the inbuilt GPS records its position while you fly.
Using the AeroPoints data is just as easy as they automatically upload their recorded coordinates after the flight. Simply log into the Propeller Platform and select how you want your GCPs to be processed and corrected.
AeroPoints are trusted by industry and drone professionals in 19 countries with over 1500 surveys complete to date. Their ability to deliver sub 20mm accuracy has been independently tested by our customers numerous times.

In a range of Propeller Corrections Network, you will get survey-grade global accuracy every time. Even in remote areas, you can still get high internal accuracy using an AeroPoint as a base station or just laying them out.
You can calibrate your AeroPoints with an existing permanent survey mark, including State Marks by placing an AeroPoint over the mark and upload the mark’s position with your AeroPoints data.
If you want your drone data to have the same reference point as your other data, you can import a RINEX file with your AeroPoints. Great for construction sites with machine control.
You can ensure your drone data is completely aligned with your machine control, design and other site data by uploading a Point Pair file to calibrate AeroPoints with your Local Grid coordinates.
