Is there a feature that allows a user to export a KMZ using some sort of site bench marks instead of having to rotate a drawing to the correct lats and longs?
In order to create a KML, KMZ output for Google Earth the Project has to be Coordinated so that we can output in WGS84 (what Google Earth uses). The options that you have to achieve that are
1) Import a Site Calibration File for the Project in DC (SCS900), CAL (SCS900), CFG (GCS900), or JOB / JXL file format (Trimble Access)
2) Define the Projection and Datum for the Project based on what is on the plans - this depends on the data that you have created in the Takeoff being in the right coordinate frame (as per the 2D Takeoff last week at PUG). You can select the projection and Datum using the Change Coordinate System command and select the Coordinate System e.g. United States / State Plane / NAD 83 and the Zone e.g. OHIO South 3402 (NAD 1983 (Conus)) and then optionally select a Vertical Datum or Geoid Model
3) If you have been given some data that allows you to compute the shifts - for example I was recently given the Coordinates of 2 points in a Local Coordinate System at YVR airport in Canada, as well as the LLH values for those points - and the Coordinate System and Zone info - you can create a Site Calibration using those two points to define the Site Cal required to get to WGS84 - here are my Notes from that process (This is the closest to what you have asked I think)
Enclosed are 2x Projects set up in different ways to handle the Coordinate System Information and map to Google Earth. The data provided was as follows
If any of the above have been executed you can select the Google Earth output and the data from the BC-HCE Project will end up in the right place in Google Earth.
