Plex.Earth 4 – Connects AutoCAD with Google Earth and the Real World

From the Autodesk App Store:

Connect your Autodesk® AutoCAD® projects to Google Earth, Google Maps, Bing Maps, OpenStreetMap or any WMS provider (e.g. USGS)

  • Import images and create seamless mosaics with aerial imagery from Google Earth or any provided.
  • Export your 2D drawings or 3D models directly to Google Earth, quickly and easily, in both KML and compressed KMZ format for greater versatility.
  • Import KML files into AutoCAD.
  • Create terrain models with elevation data fetched directly by Google Earth.
  • Full package for surface creation by any data set, such as breaklines, boundaries, points or even elevation data extracted by plain text in AutoCAD.
  • Advanced image processing capabilities, such as to merge and clip (while retaining georeference), and the ability to create World Files, thus allowing imagery transfer between AutoCAD and any other CAD/GIS system.
  • 3,000+ supported coordinate systems worldwide, even in the basic edition of AutoCAD.

Import elevation data from the selected provider
to create a detailed terrain model.

Create elevation contours.

Perform terrain analysis to make design decisions.

Export to Google Earth to engage customers and
stakeholders with an interactive visualization.
