During the historical evolution of aerial photogrammetry all the production processes involved in its workflow have, in one way or another, been improved or optimized by the contemporaneous technological breakthroughs. There is however one area that, until today, continues unaltered since its inception, the Ground Control Point survey process which is still manually performed by a human. The motivation of this master thesis is twofold, in one hand to study a method to automate the Ground Control Point collection process by using Remotely Piloted Air Systems as both, visual targets as well as Global Navigation Satellite System receivers and, on the other hand, study if the technological concept may become a viable business or not.
