Create lines from existing points

Upgrade your surveying experience with coding, linework, background maps, and localization

This guide explains how to create a line from existing points in your project in the Emlid Flow app.


Emlid Flow allows you to create lines from existing points. With this feature, you can create and stake out linear objects like fences, roads, and buildings with as many points as you need for further use in GIS or CAD software.


In the Emlid Flow app, you can see the 3D length of your line.


To create a new line from existing points, follow the steps below:

  1. Go to the Survey tab.

  2. Open the project you want to work with.

  3. Open the list of Objects, tap the + button at the top, and select Add line from the drop-down menu.

  4. Select points on the map or from the list to add them to the line.


    You can change the order of the points by dragging them.

  5. Select a code for your line from your Code library list.

  6. Tap Save to create a line. After you create a new line, it appears in the list of objects.

Now you can add new lines or keep working with the line you've just created.
