How to import a project to Emlid Flow

  2. Create a project in the same coordinate system as the one you have for import.
  3. Tap Import and choose your file format: CSV, DXF, or Shapefile.
  4. Choose the file for import from your device. On Android, you need to upload the file directly from the internal memory of the mobile device.
