In the absence of having geo coordinates of ground control points, can you improve the relative measurement accuracy by providing known distance measurements between points?  I know this is possible with some software I used before (Pix4)  you provide the software with the real measured size of some feature (i.e. length of a building) and, it will scale the project accordingly, which should increase the relative accuracy.

Is there a workflow in Photoscan to do this also?
