I am running Revit 2009 and have the Google Earth plug-in, allowing me to export/import between GE and Revit. Does anyone know if there is a way to actually import the topography from Ge into Revit. I know it is available in AutoCAD, so I would think it should be able to done in Revit, I would think.

Not directly, if you get the topo into cad, then bring that into revit. But I've found the topo from google is not accurate and very coarse. Its better to get the topo from the civil engineer or surveyor

You can import points using revit. Autocad reads points and try to import the points from autocad or use Civil 3D to import the points. Civil 3D is easier to maintain the points from google earth.

 

DL a copy of civil 3d and GE imports the map and topo directly into Civil 3D. Revit imports the points directly from Civil 3D
