I’m an estimator from a civil engineering construction background. I’ve been dabbling in Sketchup for a few years now and starting to get to some form of decent output. I’m convinced there’s a lot more here for the construction game and the particular task in mind could help us a lot.
So I’d like to create mark-ups in Google Earth or Google Maps
a. These need to be fairly accurate, i.e. traffic management – which lanes are live at various stages of the job, mark up existing features that need demolishing, etc.
b. Why Google Earth or Maps. Most on site know how to do this but that’s as far as their skills go. It’s also very quick and being able to trace along an aerial photo is what we need.
Then take these mark-ups to Sketchup and produce quality documents to help run the job.
I spent a good few hrs last night trying to figure this out but got the ongoing error message when trying to import .kmz files
So any help and advice would be greatly appreciated.
