In this movie, we will begin creating our museum project that we talked about in…the Intro chapter to the course.…What I have here on screen is a JPEG of the site that we are going to use for…our project, and we got this from Google Maps and you can see here that we have a…fairly large site available to us with a residential neighborhood up to the…north and a little bit more medium density developments down towards the south.…Now when we did our preliminary designs, we decided that the building is going…to go kind of in the center of the map right here and we are going to do our…main entrance with a nice big long promenade along this direction here.…
So that raises a couple challenges that we want to get into right away.…The first is we want to create our new Revit project and we want to bring this…image in to our work off of, and secondly we want to reorient it to match a…more convenient orientation for building the Revit model, but maintain the…actual direction of north as we go along so that later we can do some accurate…
