georeferencing drawings

Recommended Posts

Hello, i have posted about this before.. I am hoping someone has some advice. I have a drawing (map) of an area and want to export to google earth. Have started with just a simple polygon of the area. I can not get the polygon to place in the correct place in google earth!

Google earth uses WGS 1984

cheers, jim

you have to either force WGS194 co-ordinates when you export, or convert it yourself using GIS. We use ArcGIS to reproject our shapefiles into WGS1984 in order to use in google earth.

I have VW 2014, and the pro version of Google Earth Pro, and i still need to use the FREE qgis to re-project my data to back and forth...

Is there anyone that is able to export / import linework from VW to Google Earth (pro)
