Sites Overview

Understand Sites in Measure Ground Control

What is a Site?

A Site in Measure Ground Control (MGC) represents a real-world location of interest where flight operations occur. Sites allow users to tie collected data and data products to one location, track activity, and take advantage of MGC's Site Type feature to track industry-specific metadata relevant to those locations. Mission planners can use Sites to quickly plan and assign repeatable missions and to gain a better understanding of how flight operations are being conducted at each location.

Customers can request new and custom Site types by contacting us at support@measure.com.
