A lot of my jobs in Texas I hear the surveyors or Civil Engineers talk about grid or ground coordinates being used.
What are most of you seeing/using and how are your getting the type of points and surface you need for your deliverables when the Rock cloud and Google maps and most drone based programs are built in grid format?
Take a look at the attached photo. You’ll see two GCP markers. One is the coordinates in grid format (looks proper on the basemap) and the one further northeast in Ground (surveyor wants his data in this format but it shows up too far north and east on the map). They are the same point, but with the ground calibration (combined scale factor for this location is: 0.999843167).
