Using measured flow rated instead of estimated
I understand that Netro estimates water usage based on time, emitter type, and square footage, but I have access to actual flow rate via a Flume flow rate monitor. Is there a way to replace the flow rate estimates with actual rates for each system?

Actual rates is not supported.

If you can tell me the GPM you assume for each square foot for each sprinkler type, I could adjust the square footage to give the measured rate. Can you provide that information?

Here is a calculator of flow rate https://www.spikevm.com/calculators/irrigation/water-application-rate.php
And some typical flow rate:
