Definition[edit]

This definition is wrong. GSD measures linear distance. It is not area-based. That is why it is measured in meters, for example, and not square meters.

GSD is the distance on the ground between two projected pixel centers. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 128.115.27.11 (talkcontribs) 19:11, 11 November 2011‎
