Use lots of ground control (i.e. GCP). I use Blue-Max fabric targets staked with landscape pins. My last desert site was about 600 acres and I used about 22  targets surveyed with differential GNSS.

Hello,
I have images of a desert area and have very difficult to treat with them, what is the suitable technique in this case?
thanks,

Hi KIMOO,

Can you tell us what are you doing and where is the desert you are working on ?

Maybe you can screenshot the picture of your area ?

Hi ahmed,

For flat areas a strong imaging geometry is recommended (besides good reference information).

Therefore you should acquire images with a slightly inclined camera instead of nadir ( =pointing straight down). Additionally, add perpendicular tie lines to your survey so that you fly a 'cross hatch' pattern. This will help to improve the error.

And make sure to have sharp and high quality imagery. Motion blur caused by a too high horizontal flight speed will overall increase the error of your 3D reconstruction.

And last but not least, don't forget to run OPTIMISE in Metashape to minimize the reprojection error and improve accuracy. 

All the best.

Regards,
