I really like the way Emlid Flow works. It’s just what we need, and it’s easy to send people with minimal training into the field. I also like the way projects are synchronized (almost) in real time.
Only when importing points I can’t get it to upload a shape with coordinates in WGS 84 (EPSG:4326). When I set a local CS and transform the point to the local CS it works, but in most files I work directly with WGS84, and I would like to upload these as well. With csv that should be possible, but with shape files I can’t get it to work.
Isn’t that possible, or am I doing something wrong?
In projects without local CS it will load the points from a global-shp as local coordinates and can’t show the points. When I make a project with local CS, it will load points, but uses the lat/lon values as x/y-coordinates.
I discussed your case with the team. At the moment, Emlid Flow can import the SHP files in local coordinates only. As a current workaround, you can upload SHP files in local coordinates. Or import files in CSV to work exactly with WGS84.
I’ll note your case as a feature request for the support of geographic coordinates for SHP import and pass it to the team for consideration. If I have any news on that, I’ll post them in this thread.
Just wanted to share some news here! Emlid Flow now supports uploading SHP files in geographic coordinates. To make it work, ensure having a PRJ file in the SHP archive.
I tested it with the data you shared above: manually added a PRJ file, renamed it, and compressed the data. It worked like a charm
Here is the PRJ file that I used. If you don’t have a PRJ file in your future datasets, you can use this one as well. I have also attached your dataset after adding the PRJ file to it so that you have an example.
