I mapped an area using Drone deploy in south east UK. My client wanted to download the .geotiff files onto GIS - however it placed the map about 20miles north of where it should have been! I took the Lat / Long data from the exif data and again it showed the location to be way off by miles...Any ideas?

Welcome to Mavic Pilots from Dayton Ohio USA! Share the links I'd be glad to take a look at it. I've been off by a couple feet before but not 20 miles. Fly safe!
