Placing a SketchUp model in Google Earth
Search the Knowledge Center...
Geo-Modeling is the process of creating a model with the purpose of including it in Google Earth's 3D Building layer (making it visible for all Google Earth users). However, you might want to place and preview a model in its proper geo-located place in Google Earth without submitting the model for inclusion in Google Earth's 3D Buildings layer. To place (and preview) a model in your local copy of Google Earth:
- Create your model.
- Add location information to the model. Refer to Add Location: Adding a location for further information.
- If necessary, resize your model to fit the building footprint of the location.
- If necessary, reposition your model over the location.
- Place the model in Google Earth. Refer to Preview Model: Previewing a model in Google Earth for further information.
