FEATURES


Import images to CAD from different providers in satellite, map or hybrid mode at different resolutions.

Import Google Earth images to CAD

Import Google Earth™ images to AutoCAD

Images can be imported from major service providers (Google, Bing, Yahoo, Ovi) in different resolutions (Normal, medium, high, highest) and image modes (satellite, map, hybrid) in full color or grayscale in major image formats (BMP, JPEG, TIFF). 


Export AutoCAD drawings to Google Earth

Export AutoCAD drawings to Google Earth™

Export CAD drawings to Google Earth as image overlays in full color, grayscale or B&W, in different image formats (BMP, JPEG, TIFF, PNG, GIF). Background color and opacity can be adjusted. Multiple screenshots can be taken to increase the final image resolution.


Insert georeferenced images

Insert georeferenced images

Accurately place an image world file with spatial data in your drawing, applying XY scale and translation transformations. Use this command to insert images having the corresponding world file with spatial data information. CAD-Earth has the option to create world files when importing images from Google Earth.


Easily import & export objects between CAD and Google EarthTM

Export AutoCAD objects to Google Earth

Export AutoCAD objects to Google Earth™

Lines, polylines, arcs, circles and 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 by specifying the maximum segment length and deflection angle. Placemark name, description, scale and icon can also be set.

Import Google Earth objects to AutoCAD

Import Google Earth™ objects to AutoCAD

Images can be imported from major service providers (Google, Bing, Yahoo, Ovi) in different resolutions (Normal, medium, high, highest) and image modes (satellite, map, hybrid) in full color or grayscale in major image formats (BMP, JPEG, TIFF). 


Preview position of entities in a map

Preview position of entities in a map

You can preview the position of selected drawing entities in a map when selecting a coordinate system to georeference a drawing. Drawing entities can be moved, scaled or rotated in the map until they match the site.



Get contour lines, profiles and sections from Google EarthTM

Import Google Earth terrain

Import Google Earth™ terrain

A terrain mesh can be imported selecting an existing closed polyline or along a polyline path calculating point elevations from Google Earth. By specifying the origin point, rotation angle and and mesh resolution the density and precision can be adjusted. The resulting mesh can be processed to get contour lines, dynamic profile and section drawings complete with annotations. You can link the Google Earth image to the mesh when importing.

Draw contour lines in AutoCAD

Draw contour lines in AutoCAD®

Selecting an existing terrain mesh contour polylines can be created. Vertical separation, layer, color and smoothness factor for contour polylines and the text layer, color, size, prefix, suffix, decimal places and placement options for contour labels can be specified. Existing contour polylines will be automatically updated if settings are changed.


Mobirise

Profile and sections from mesh

After a terrain mesh is imported to AutoCAD®, a polyline can be drawn to indicate a path where a profile and sections will be extracted. Station lines with chainage annotations will be inserted along the polyline, and the corresponding profile and sections will be created, complete with elevation, station and scale annotations. The user can specify the color, layer, text style, size and placement for each profile and section element.


Easily georeference your drawing.

More than 3000 coordinate systems available

More than 3000 coordinate systems available

Convert accurately between any coordinate system in the world and Google EarthTM. If you have georeferenced your drawing using AutoCAD® commands, CAD-Earth® can use this information to convert coordinates when importing or exporting objects, images and terrain meshes.

Georeference your drawing placing entities on a map

Georeference your drawing placing entities on a map

Georeference your drawing selecting some reference entities in your drawing (like lines, polylines, arcs and circles) and locating them in a map. You can move, rotate and scale the reference objects until they are correctly placed.

Georeference your drawing selecting two points

Georeference your drawing selecting two points

If you know the corresponding latitude and longitude coordinates of at least two points in your drawing the georeference parameters can be calculated with this information.




Terrain Mesh Viewer (CAD-Earth Premium)

New in CAD-Earth Premium!
Instantly get cut-fill volume calculations, display the mesh by elevation or slope colors, show contour lines, create animation videos, and much more.

Visit our Youtube channel for videos about our software's features.

CAD-Earth Instant Cut-Fill

Instantly get cut-fill volume calculations 

Get instant cut-fill volume calculations by selecting polygon points on the surface, an existing polyline or a mesh in the drawing. The area will be colored according to the depth and color defined for each cut-fill range. You can insert a summary table, along with the plan view in your drawing. 

CAD-Earth Elevation Slope Ranges

View the surface by elevation or slope ranges

The mesh can also be displayed with colors according to defined elevation and slope ranges. The color can be applied to the whole surface, defining points on the surface, or selecting a closed polyline in the drawing. The total calculations will be shown instantly for each range. 

CAD-Earth instant contour lines

Display instant contour lines

Contour lines can be displayed defining line color, the gap between them, and the base elevation. When you change the camera position or direction, the contour lines are instantly updated. 


CAD-Earth Animation Videos

Create animation videos

Awesome video animations can be created defining camera position and view direction, speed and pause time. The resulting file can be opened in any mp4 compatible player, such as the Windows Media Player. You can also save and load animation sequences. 


CAD-Earth Mesh Cross Section

Inspect an ortographic view of a mesh cross section

Defining a rectangle over the surface, you can view a cross section of the area. The rectangle can be moved, scaled or rotated to adjust the area, and the cross-section view will be automatically updated. You can maximize the cross section window to see more detail. 

CAD-Earth Screenshot

Insert a screenshot of the current view

Selecting various predefined resolutions, and save it to an image file or insert it in the current drawing as a raster image reference.
