Importing historical imagery in Google Earth

This tutorial will guide you through the process of importing historical imagery to your AutoCAD project. 

Besides user preference in doing so, in some circumstances, recent images might be obscured by clouds or pixelated imagery that is just not up to their standard. Why settle for the most recent image, when older ones can offer better quality?

The next few steps will guide you through the process of selecting and importing historical imagery from Google Earth:


1) In Google Earth, move your cursor to the top middle section of the toolbar, and select the Show historical imagery command



2) Toggle through the available historical images and select the one you prefer



3) You can now go ahead and import your historical images to AutoCAD using the Image importing commands from the Plex.Earth Ribbon.


Additionally, if you want to identify the exact date of the images you have imported to your AutoCAD project, you can find more information here.
