Available micro-sized Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) in the civilian domain currently make use of common GPS receivers and
do not address scenarios where high-precision positioning of the UAV is an inevitable requirement. However, for use cases such as
creating orthophotos using direct georeferencing, an improved positioning needs to be developed. This article analyses the
requirements for integrating Real Time Kinematic positioning into micro-sized UAVs. Additionally, it describes the data processing
and synchronisation of the high-precision position data for a workflow of orthorectification of aerial imagery. Preliminary results are
described for the use case of precision farming.
