Just wanted to announce to the community that we have just released PlaceMaker 1.1 which includes our new geo-location tool that is completely independent of SketchUp’s Add Location Tool.
This means that:
- SketchUp 2016 users can geo-locate their models with PlaceMaker, even after the May 22 change
- SketchUp Make user can geo-locate their models with PlaceMaker (for non-Commercial use of course)
The tool uses DigitalGlobe imagery and imports a low resolution ‘snap-shot’ similar to how SketchUp’s Add Location tool works. Sorry, terrain import is not available with this tool.
The tool is available for free as part of a PlaceMaker Trial license. In order to import high resolution imagery over a large area, a full license for PlaceMaker is required.
You can order a free trial at:
