    Revit to Google Earth (or Google Maps/Earth to Revit)

    What's everyone's best workflow for getting contextual site information from Google Earth? I tried using CADtoEarth from AMC Bridge but the amount of geometry that you can publish is pretty limited. I exported a DWG and imported into SketchUp to publish from there, which seems to work the best so far but I am missing my materials. This is pretty cool, but seems like a lot of work: The Revit Saver: Combining Google Maps, Photogrammetry and Pointcloud Data into Revit 2016

    Any other suggestions?

    That method works great! It is actually not as much work as you think. Google earth allows us to record a video (had) and export out as an image sequence. From there you can batch crop in Photoshop and upload to memento. (250 images maximum)

    What does Google think of everyone using their data/info like this? From what I understand this was an issue in the past and google/autodesk had a "falling out" over stuff like this
