Transformation between coordinate systems
« on: May 13, 2021, 03:42:56 PM »
Good afternoon!

Mr. Pasumansky I'm kindly asking you to let me know what method is used for transformation between coordinate systems in Metashape? My colleagues and I think that it might not be only a 7 parameter transformation, but some kind of polynomial. Could you please confirm or deny this? Could you please tell me more about the method you use?

Kind regards,

Alexey Pasumansky

Hello AndrejH,

Metashape is using 7-parameter Helmert transformation in geocentric domain.

Please refer to pages 108-109 of the following document:
