Affordable Mapping/Surveying with the DJI Phantom 4 RTK

In the past, getting good quality aerial data required large, expensive machines or even using manned aircraft. The DJI Phantom 4 RTK provides high-quality images with exceptional positioning information at a price point that is far below the cost of other systems.

The Phantom 4 RTK utilizes a built-in RTK module to provide real-time, centimeter-level positioning data that is saved within the image’s metadata. This allows mapping software to accurately position the images on the final stitch far more accurately.

For the positional information, you can use either DJI’s D-RTK 2 base station or any NTRIP compatible network.

The Phantom 4 RTK’s camera uses a 1-inch, 20 megapixel CMOS sensor coupled with a mechanical shutter to eliminate motion blur and rolling shutter issues.

With the high-resolution camera, the P4 RTK can achieve a ground same distance of 2.74 cm at 100 meter flight altitude.

In the video below, we talk about the workflow of using the Phantom 4 RTK.
