Relative Altitude in exif/xmp file

DJI still records the heigth AGL relative to the takeoff point in the xmp portion of the exif file for a picture. Is there any reason that MME can't use that value instead of relying on GPS and the Ground Reference photo?

That is the whole point of our Ground Reference correction system. We don't want to use the GPS values if we don't have to. When a Ground Reference image is uploaded it allows us to use the relative height from the XMP to add onto a known location elevation from USGS.

There is no way to force it to use just the relative altitude value instead of the GPS values or the corrected values though.

Ok, slight misunderstanding on my part.  Had inferred that you were doing some type of simple subtraction of the elevation in the ground reference photo and the others in the map.
