How to synchronize the KML File with Google Maps

Sometimes the KML file might not be placed at the expected location on Google Maps. One possible reason for this is that the project does not have any GCPs that can be used to correct the GPS position of the images. Another reason can be the inaccuracy of Google Maps itself. In both cases it will help if you create user-defined GCPs from Google Maps as described in the chapter before.


In order to Synchronize the KML file with Google Maps follow:

1. Obtain the georeference using GCPs taken from a Web Map Service server: 202560149.
2. Include the GCPs in the project: 202560239.
