Issues with Creating Markers/GCPs
« on: May 23, 2022, 07:38:10 PM »
Hello all,

I have limited knowledge of Agisoft, so please bear with me.

I'm currently having issues with creating markers in my images. My current workflow is as such: Align photos, Build Mesh, uncheck photos in the Reference window (because the photos are in WSG84, but my GCPs are in NAD83/State Plane). Then I change the Settings in the Reference window to the necessary State coordinate system and import the GCPs. According to the forum and YouTube videos, I should be able to double click a photo to open it in a new tab and right click to Add Marker. However, this does not happen.

I'm currently using a free trial of Agisoft Metashape Professional 1.8.x.

Thank you for your time!

hello  Mey,

you should use Convert button from Reference pane to convert your aligned project from WGS84 to Nad83/state plane and then import your GCPs in state plane and it should work....
