Upgrade your surveying experience with coding, linework, and satellite map
This guide shows how to collect points to store their positions in a project using Emlid Flow.
Collector in Emlid Flow allows creating linework with as many points as you want. With linework, you can measure linear objects like fences, roads, and pavements, and store their positions in a project for further in GIS software.
