Importing geolocated files into SketchUp with the same or relative location as the source data?

I was provided with a tiled aerial mesh in tiled collada (.dae) files that are geolocated. However, this location data is ignored when I import these files into Sketchup Pro. Instead, each tile I import floats with the selection tool until arbitrarily positioned by left clicking the mouse. How can I import collada files into SketchUp with the same location as the source data (as-is)?

Hi Jennifer, I’m still researching this.
To clarify, are you geolocating the SketchUp model before importing the dae files?
(File > Geolocation > Add Location)

No, the collada files already have geolocation data within.

I wonder if creating a blank SketchUp model and geolocating the blank model would give the .dae geolocation a point of reference to attach to. Do you want to try that and let me know if it helps?
