[Plugin] Display Latitude & Longitude

[Plugin] Display Latitude & Longitude

Postby Didier Bur » Sun Sep 26, 2010 9:06 am

Hi,
A friend requested this small tool so here it is: assumed your model is georeferenced, click a point and you'll get the latitude/longitude coordinates of this point (decimal format).
Thanks to TIG for helping me on this ;)

Install: drop it in Plugins folder
Usage: Select "Latitude/Longitude of point" from the Tools menu, and pick a point.

Dear Didier,

It would be cool to see you more often ;)
Thank you for this one. I think georeferencement is in the smell of the times. Something which is going to be a sort of revolution. Everybody, everything is going to need to be georeferenced. IMO as a consequency, a revolution in the minds. Like Japanese people we are on to consider that the same object my car for example, is not the same object when it is not at the same place......

In case Here is a Motions of the Sun Simulator a tool indicated by Dale


Cheers, simon

Didier,

Fantastic plugin. Is there a plugin that you know of that could do the opposite. Insert a point or ray at a known lat long position.
Regards,
Mike

No, but that's do-able.

mike:
SU and Goolge Earth uses the WGS 84 datum ,but not all locales do world wide. So at any time make sure you under stand what datum you need to be working with.

Didier,

Is it possible to make this extension return the Sea Level ELEVATION, in addition to the Latitude and Longitude, if the model is geo-located?

We often design our sites from land surveys, which provide spot elevations (height above sea level). It would be great to locate those spot elevations on the site in SketchUp as well.

If not, do you know of an extension that can return the geo-located Sea Level Elevation, similar to how your extension returns the Latitude and Longitude?

Hope you can help.
Thanks.
Dave.
