Hi,

 

Is there an plugin of some sort which makes it possible to project ur drawing (when drawn and placed on world coördinates) on any of these satelites maps?

 

You can make ur own image and place it as an xref, but maybe you can load google maps under the drawing directly.

 

I hope the question is clear.

 

There seem to be program's to get ur autocad drawing to google earth (but i think thats for the 3d buildings and such), but i want it the other way arround.

in Civil3D, _ImportGEImage will do it.

I doubt you have that in vanilla

that just printscreens an image from google earth (that must run in background?? i allready had it open when i entered the command).

 

thats not what i want (i can do that allready, although a bit different).

Not that i can see and i've trolled the net inside out for it, but its an intresting idea. Could always put it on AutoDesk wishlist maybe :wink:

If your DWG has an assigned projection, it will reference correctly.

With Civil and Map there are other options to bring in georeferneced imagery and other data but again, I don't thing those options exist in vanilla...
