The New Emlid Flow

Emlid Flow App Logo

Emlid Flow is a mobile application for iOS and Android. It is the wonderful upgrade of the ReachView 3 application, remodeled, improved and adapted for mobile. It connects to the Emlid Flow 360 cloud platform and has all the capabilities to manage all the workflow in the field: receiver settings, data collection, coding, linework and stakeout.

The application automatically synchronizes with the cloud platform, the user thus having access to his projects from the browser, can organize his data from the survey and can access his list of codes.

When purchasing a GNSS receiver, the Emlid Flow application is available for free through the Standard plan.

Functionalities

  • Linework and coding
  • Geoids, grid shifts, custom coordinate systems
  • Stake out points and lines
  • All your projects are available in the Emlid Flow 360

Emlid Flow comes with a list of very useful and intuitive functionalities, available for free with a Standard subscription plan. Access to complex functionalities such as coding or collecting and staking out lines can be done through the Survey plan which is $25 per month for an annual subscription.

Manage projects in cloud

Manage your projects in the cloud – Standard

The Emlid Flow app is synchronized with the Emlid Flow 360 service. This allows you to create and access survey projects, manage coordinate systems, export and import data using both the — mobile app and the cloud service at flow360.emlid.com. For data export and import, you can choose the suitable format to use in your CAD, GIS, or other survey software.

Export and import formats: CSV, DXF, and Shapefile

Collect and stake out points

Collect and stake out points – Standard

Collect points and write detailed descriptions in a few taps. To create a project for data collection, choose your coordinate system from the library or enter its parameters manually. The app supports thousands of coordinate systems, projections, grids, and geoids.

In the stakeout mode, the app displays East-North and straight-to-line distances, and supports cut and fill indications. A close-up alignment mode helps you to center precisely above the point.

Coordinate systems based on: WGS84, NAD83, GDA2020, and others

Collect and stake out lines – Survey

Create linework on the go, start new lines, and continue collecting existing ones. You can use either predefined geometry types or a full-blown code library. The linework is displayed right away, so you can always see how your project is progressing.

During the stakeout, you can easily navigate to a line and check if it’s indicated correctly, stake out a line with an offset and with a chainage.

Coding

Coding – Survey

To measure and describe objects, upload your custom code library or use a built-in one with more than a hundred codes. You can quickly switch between different object codes as the whole library is at your fingertips at all times. Easily create new codes on the fly right in your survey project.

Manage your code libraries

Manage your code libraries – Survey

Import your code library to Emlid Flow 360, and it is immediately available for your projects inside the Emlid Flow mobile app. No need to check if the latest version is on the collector, it all syncs automatically.

More details about the Emlid Flow functionalities can be found at https://flow.emlid.com/.
