2017-07-17_09-13-56

Trimble and SketchUp have changed geographic data providers so that it can continue to enable the Add Location feature in some versions of SketchUp.

The “Street View” (Photo Textures) feature is no longer  available. Google is no longer providing this service due to legal restrictions
