MicroStation CONNECT Edition Help

Synchronize Google Earth View

Used to have Google Earth navigate to the current MicroStation view. If Google Earth is not open when the tool is used, it will be opened automatically.

Note: This tool works only with 32 bit Google Earth. 64 bit Google Earth is not supported for this tool.

You can access this tool from the following:

  • Ribbon: Drawing > Utilities > Geographic > Follow Google Earth View
  • Toolbox: Geographic

As Google Earth supports only a limited camera model with a fixed lens length and restricts the camera to pointing downward only, the Google Earth views will not always match the MicroStation view exactly, but should provide a relatively good approximation for most views.
