Upload Flight Data from the Litchi App on iOS Devices

1. Launch iTunes. (If you don’t already have iTunes on your computer, you can download it from Apple).

2. Attach the iPhone or iPad used during flight(s) to your computer via USB cable.

3. In iTunes, click on the iPhone or iPad icon located in the upper left of the iTunes window

4. On the left-hand side, below the icon showing your device, scroll down to Apps.

5. Click on Apps, and scroll through the list of apps until you find the Litchi app.

6. Click on Litchi.

7. From the list of Litchi files on the right side of the screen, select and open the folder flightlogs.

8. Scroll to the bottom of the screen and click the Save to… button. Select a folder and location wherever you want to store these files on your computer. Now that you have your Litchi flight data files on your computer, you’re ready to upload them into Survae.

9. Go to your browser and make sure you’re logged in to your account at http://world.survae.com.

10. Click the blue up-arrow in the top left of the window, to the right of the Survae logo.

11. Browse to the folder containing the data files you just copied from the Litchi app.  Data files are stored as csv files and named with the date and time of each flight – for example: 2017-07-29_13-46-49_v2.csv.

13. Find and select a data file with a name that closely matches your video’s date/time. Click the Open button and the file will begin uploading to Survae.

DO NOT LEAVE THE PAGE in your browser while the file is uploading. Leaving the page will interrupt the upload process. You can open another tab or window in your browser or do other work on your computer, but be sure to leave the browser window open to the page when any files are uploading in Survae.

Data files should upload very quickly as they are small files. After the data file has finished uploading, it will process.After processing, one or more video data files will be generated from the flight data. Survae will then look for a matching video and video data file.If you previously uploaded the video that goes with the data, a match will be made. The new video will now contain a description and a path will be displayed on the map. The video upload process is complete. If you upload your data prior to the video, the match will occur once the corresponding video file is uploaded.

Once a match is made, your video will have a temporary title associated with the location in which it was recorded. You can change this title at any time by going into the Edit function for the video.
