I am facing an issue while importing a google earth surface, while impoprting i have to restart a GE everytime otherwise it while imorting it comes up to 49% and then stop working,
Why this is happening...is there any solution?
Go to Toolspace, Settings, Surface, Commands, ImportGEData and ImportGESurface
Right click each of these, under the Google Earth Options change the Rows & Columns to be 70 x 70 or less.
Correct, GE only allows a certain amount of data per session. If you find an older version of GE, it used to allow much more data (version 4.2, I believe, was the last to do so).
You might be interested in our software, Plex.Earth, which deals with this issue, by identifying when GE reaches to that state. It prompts you to close Google Earth and then it resumes the procedure from the last point.
If you want to parse hundreds of thousands or millions points from GE , there's also a special edition which fully automates the procedure.
You can test it from here:
BTW, if you work on AutoCAD 2012, it's also available throught the Autodesk Exchange App Store.
I hope it helps and if you need anything, please let me know.
