Site Modeling in SketchUp

This video describes an architectural workflow for using SketchUp to build a digital site model with context buildings, aerial imagery, and 3D terrain. It covers the following:

  • Scouting the site using Google Earth and Google Maps (starting at 00:35)
  • Bringing a geo-snapshot of your site into SketchUp (starting at 05:20)
  • Importing existing 3D buildings (starting at 07:30)
  • Modeling missing buildings from scratch (starting at 10:00)
  • Making massing model versions of the photo-textured buildings (starting at 16:30)
  • Tracing roads from the aerial photo (starting at 23:47)
  • Working with a site that isn't flat (starting at 34:17)
  • Creating a new ground plane and street name labels (starting at 42:05)
  • Creating utility scenes to show different versions of the model (starting at 50:23)
