Accurate Terrain Workflow From Sketchup

Recommended Posts

Has anybody had success using SketchUp Geo-location > Export as *.dae or *.kmz > GPSBabel conversion > import to CA as terrain? 

 

I keep coming up blank, so there's some obvious user error.  Anybody?

Would love to know the answer to this as well, please let me know if you've found an answer.  I'm sure it would take many conversions.  I've had good success importing 3ds and seating it into the house, but that's it.  

 

Cheers!

Jon,  I think Scott hosted a go-to-meeting on this a few months ago, and I think a video was made.

They just imported a symbol.  I'm trying to do terrain data via a GPS import.  I guess I should go watch the video again incase I missed something.

Jon,  you did not miss anything.  I have no clue how to work with the sketchup terrain.

Why do the gps conversion? You can bring the data in correct just as we went over in the workshop. Of course....it is only as good as the Google data. Generally lidar over populated areas. Pretty decent, but I always import site done topo models for difficult sites.

Because I want to import reasonably accurate terrain data.  I guess what I'm after is anybody who uses GPSBabel to do terrain data translations.
