City of Los Angeles 3d model??

morphologist

Does anyone have a 3d model of the city of Los Angeles that I could use?? Or know of where I could possibly find one for free online.

If not, does anyone know if its possible to save a whole city in Google Earth and import it into Sketchup??


Much appreciated.

This works, but it is tricky and the models are pretty bad:

They have lots of LA models

I remember seeing a similar thread on this -- there was another app you can try, as well (which I haven't tried, myself)... here is the thread:

So, can I go into your office and ask for you to do free work?

I know this isn't what you're looking for in this case, but, if you ever get a chance to see this beauty at the LA County Museum of Natural History, you should.

They had ArcGIS at my school and whenever i had a project in a metropolitan area, i used the software to download that city and export the areas i needed to a dxf.
