Emlid introduced new functionality and a new name for his survey app. Emlid Flow is the much improved ReachView 3 app with new professional survey tools to make your work easier both in the field and in the office.
The Emlid Flow functionality for field work has been enhanced with line work and coding. For more flexibility, Emlid has also launched a cloud-based service Emlid Flow 360 that allows survey data to be managed from the office desktop.
With Emlid Flow you can create the line work on the go. Measure and proceed with just a few taps using predefined geometry types or a full-fledged code library. The linework is displayed immediately to show how the project is progressing. While staking a line using Emlid Flow visual guides, you can easily navigate to a line and stake a line with an offset and with a chain.
Emlid Flow supports the coding of points and lines during field picking. You can upload a custom code library or use a standard library built into Emlid Flow, which has over a hundred codes. No need to type the description for each point and line – just choose a code from a library at your fingertips. Quickly switch between different object codes, start or continue collecting the lines and create new codes in a research project.
Satellite map view
Another new feature brings different map layers. You can now switch between a standard map and satellite imagery.
Other app features
All features previously available in the ReachView 3 app have now moved to Emlid Flow and are available for free. As before, the app allows you to configure Reach receivers, collect and stake out points, set a coordinate system, and export or import data in CSV, DXF, and Shapefile formats.
Data management with Emlid Flow 360
The Emlid Flow app is synced with a cloud-based service Emlid Flow 360. It allows you to access and manage survey data from the browser at flow360.emlid.com.
With Emlid Flow 360 you can easily prepare for the field work from the comfort of your office: create projects, configure coordinate systems, choose code libraries or upload a new one and import all the necessary data. It is readily available in the Emlid Flow app.
When the field work is done, forget about manually transferring files from controllers – just log into Emlid Flow 360 and all your field data will be securely backed up here. The app can work offline and sync data with Emlid Flow 360 once your phone is back online. From the cloud service you can export projects in DXFs, Shapefiles and flexible CSVs just like in Emlid Flow.
Subscription to enable the new features
All existing ReachView 3 features remain free in Emlid Flow with the standard plan. This plan also includes the core features of Emlid Flow 360: synchronization with the app, project creation, and data export and import.
