Question

When using IMAGINE Photogrammetry on a remote desktop the location markers for ground control, tie and check points are not displayed in the views of the Classic Point Measurement tool. Only the point ID numbers are shown. How can the points be revealed?

Answer

Check your remote desktop connection settings and ensure that the color depth is set to Highest Quality (32-bit) under the Display tab. Also make sure that the Visual Styles option is turned on under the Experience tab for the remote connection.

After reconnecting to the remote desktop with these settings enabled the location markers for the ground control, tie and check points will display correctly alongside their ID numbers in the views of the Classic Point Measurement tool.
