Ortho-Everywhere Tool

If you`re using your Bad Elf Flex with RTK via NTRIP in combination with ArcGIS Field Maps or ArcGIS QuickCapture, you may have faced obstacles when attempting to record accurate vertical heights. That`s because ArcGIS field products store all elevations recorded with the Bad Elf Flex using the EGM96 geoid. Even though this is fine for situations involving only horizontal measurements or SBAS, EGM96 is not the correct orthometric elevation model for advanced scenarios involving RTK corrections for survey-grade accuracy. Instead, you need to be recording your elevations with the GEOID18/12B geoids used with the NAVD88 vertical datum in North America. Up to this point, this required workarounds.
