Useful Tips for Landscape modeling in SketchUp.

Here's a great little SketchUp video tutorial from the folks at concept3D, who we've shown you before with their excellent models at Northeastern University , Duke University  and fun tools like the Paul McCartney seat preview tool  for a concert last year.

The concept3D team has built a nice collection of SketchUp video tutorials, including this one that shows you how to quickly create a 3D topographic map from any location in Google Earth.

If you're a SketchUp user, I strongly recommend you view their full Video Training Series , which consists of 17 videos that show a variety of techniques for getting the most out of SketchUp.
