how to insert a skup model into google earth

Postby nightwhisper » Tue Jan 05, 2010 2:57 pm

Hi,
I have a problem importing a sketchup model into google earth. I insert the correct coordinate in sketchup but in google earth the conversion is different.

Any ideas????

Hi Chiara,

Why aren't you rather following these easy steps instead of manually entering co-ordinates?

Because it is a submarine model and its not possible using this tutorial (the seabed doesn't exist).
Tks,

What if you enable ocean modelling from Preferences > extensions? There IS seabed in the latest GE as well as SU.

How did you do to apply the sketchup coordinate to the model?

I entered the coordinates in GE and then imported the GE snapshot as per that tutorial linked above. This will import the exact same geolocation as in GE.

Good morning,
the cordinate are:

44°18’50.54” N
09°10’29.92” E

(44.314038°; 9.174979°)

And it's a submarine environments...
How can I obtain the snapshot? :?

Hm. I went west, not east. So it is somewhere in the Ligurian Sea...

Anyway, have a look at the screenshot below (kmz file attached)

Ok, thanks for all!
this is the real image...but I had to import not the image but the seabed of the point... The correct image is the following (I don't know why it is different from your)...but I can't enter into the seabed...why???

I'm getting crazy!!!!!!!!!!!

In GE > View menu, uncheck "Water surface". This will reveal the sea bed. Also, check the Ocean layer in layers.
Then in SU, enable ocean modelling (as I suggested above).

In fact, I do not precisely know what this will do (we do not have sea here and this is all I found) but it is there for this purpose as a new feature.

I can imagine that the GE sea bed is even more inaccurate as the terrain - so I would think it is possible.
