Can I like draw a 3D model using a picture as a model?

A friend of mine told me that it’s possible and that Sketchup has a great tool helping in exactly this same situation…

Google earth can be imported into SketchUp.


1. You can preview your model in Google Earth

2. You can import Google Earth Files (.kmz) into SketchUp

3. You can add a “geo location” to your model which will bring Google Earth landscape into SketchUp — you can then model on top of it, and I think there is one extension that can help you create buildings from it. But you can quickly model from a google earth image
