It's a shame the Google Snapshot image you get when Geo-locating a model in SketchUp doesn't match the image in Google Earth. I realise you can use the GE image as a texture for the Google Terrain but it's just a PITE. :-P

Oh yeah, I just realised there's 2 pages of Smilies :select: :eraser: :paint: :line: :move: :rotate: :joker:

We need to add an Aussie flag on there.

FWIW, the imagery imported into SketchUp when you use Add Location doesn't come from Google and hasn't for a few years. Google changed their terms of use to prohibit usage of their imagery and terrain data. Google basically took their toys and went home. Now the imagery and terrain data come from Digital Globe which provides it at a cost. (Google used to provide it to SketchUp for free) The more you pay, the better the image quality. You can get much higher resolution via Placemaker II if you need it.
