What is CAD-Earth?
CAD-Earth lets you import/export images, objects and terrain meshes between Google Earth and major CAD programs.
Import images from Google Earth to CAD in full color or grayscale in major image formats (BMP, JPEG, TIFF). Images can be clipped inside a closed polyline and tiled images can be created to increase image resolution.
Import Google Earth objects to CAD programs. Polygons, routes and placemarks can be imported from Google Earth to major CAD programs (AutoCAD, Civil3D, ZWCAD+, Bricscad Pro). Polygons can be imported as 2D or 3D polylines projected to terrain, optionally applying fill color. Placemarks can be imported as blocks with elevation, including placemark name and description. A symbol library is included where you can select the placemark block to be inserted or you can add your own blocks.
Export CAD objects to Google Earth. Lines, polylines, arc, circles, points can be exported to Google Earth as polygons, routes or placemarks. Object line thickness, outline, fill color and opacity can be adjusted. Curve smoothness can be controlled specifying the maximum segment length and deflection angle. Placemark name, description, scale and icon can also be set.
Export CAD screenshots to Google Earth. CAD drawings can be exported to Google Earth as image overlays. Image capture can be in full color, grayscale or B&W in major image formats (BMP, JPEG, TIFF, PNG, GIF). Background color can be completely transparent or changed to another color if desired. Screenshots can be also taken in sections to increase final image resolution.
Get contour lines, profiles and sections from Google Earth (Plus version). A terrain configuration mesh can be created inside an existing closed polyline or along a polyline path calculating point elevations from Google Earth. Specifying the origin point, rotation angle and distance between rows and columns the mesh density and precision can be adjusted. The resulting mesh can be processed to obtain contour lines, dynamic profile and section drawings complete with annotations.
