Good morning,
I have a drawing with a georeferenced level courves and I would like to insert from google earth model. When I insert the Terrain from google earth it is put in the wrong coordinates.

Hi,
you need to have a point in the Rhino document whose geolocation (longitude, latitude, altitude) be known. Ideally, you should know the geolocation of the origin (0,0,0) point of the Rhino document. If the known point is not the origin, then you can translate all your document objects so that the known point becomes the origin.

Then you just need to enter the longitude, latitude and altitude of this point in the Earth Elevation Data Import dialog:

If you have translated all objects, you can now retranslate them (including the imported terrain) in the inverse direction.
