Nowadays, Very High Resolution Satellite (VHRS) images have been used for many applications intensively. Using of the digital satellite images in relevant approaches may give more accurate ideas about the researched fields. Besides, different methods could be used for geospatial informations from relevant digital data in many disciplines. The most importance reason of using the maps, which are derived from VHRS images, is accuracy of data. To obtain maps from VHRS images or use VHRS images as map, the VHRS images require rectification. For an accurate rectification process, Ground Control Points (GCPs) must be marked in the field. In this study, spatial accuracy of the stereo WorldView-2 satellite image (0.5 m resolution) was investigated at a test area. For this, 31 GCP points were established. These points were used as controls and check point. Block adjustment was made using a different number of control and check points. The impact of the number of control points upon the adjustment results was also investigated. As a result of adjustment using a 5-point control and 26 check points; root mean square error in the 53 cm x direction, 17 cm y direction, 63 cm in z-direction has been obtained. For check points, 55 cm x direction, 26 cm y direction and z direction 65 cm root mean square error were found. Also coordinates obtained from the stereo model and the field determined by the geodetic methods coordinates of points were compared. The average position error of a point is 48 cm according to comparison results.
