GSD stands for Ground Sample Distance. It is, essentially, the size of a camera frame pixel in the real-world.

This is an essential element of performing UAS based inspections because it allows us to measure image frame objects in the real world. That is, the size of an object in an image can be measure by its width and height in pixels which can then be translated into a physical distance using the GSD.
