How I Use It
I used this software in my architecture class. I had my students build a replica of their house using Google (Trimble) SketchUp and place the 3D model of their house onto their property in Google Earth.
My Take
My students and I really enjoy using Google Earth. It is a great resource for geography. I like that students can 'see' their neighborhood from a different perspective.
