Sketchup-Using Google Earth

Sometimes after completing a building, our clients still can't imagine how the buildings will be placed in its actual environment, Google SketchUp provides the google toolbar, which basically use google earth to position the building using contoured map.

We can import the the contoured map into our design and then after placing our building or object, we can export it again to google. And then we can save the image from its actual location from many views. Although it is not precise contours or landscape, but at least it will provide clearer image to our client, not to mention more practical, about how our building will be positioned.

Furthermore, we can also edit the contours of which we get by using the sandbox tools,such as add detail, Stamp and smoove.

Have a nice day!
