Ocean Modeling
Allows you to model on the ocean surface, ocean bottom, or somewhere in between.
Ocean Modeling

The workflow for creating and placing SketchUp models in Google Earth Ocean layer follows:

  1. Go to View > Toolbars and launch the Google toolbar.
  2. Click Add location and add a location that is over the area in the ocean where you want to create your model. Refer to Adding a location for information on how to add a location to your model.
  3. Create your model on or above the 2D image of the ocean. If you draw your model above the 2D image (so that it floats in the middle of the ocean), you need to know the ocean depth. It is possible to place a model at a distance above the 2D image of the ocean floor such that it appears at or above sea level if you place your model at a height above the 2D image that is more than the depth of the ocean.
  4. Click View Terrain to toggle to a 3D image of the ocean floor.
  5. Reposition the model, adjusting for the terrain in the 3D image.
  6. Click Preview Model in Google Earth to view the model in Google Earth.
  7. Click Share Model to post the model to the 3D Warehouse.
