    I'm looking for a Mac app to import my building models into satellite maps of an area to show how the buildings I have modeled look in the real environment. I think Google Earth Pro can do that. But I'm looking for an alternative preferably a free one.

    Might help to know what are you modelling in now?

    Sketchup can import terrain from Google Earth but but you hardly describe the results as "real environment". It also had tools to help you perspective match your model to a photo, then again a lot of 3d tools do. It all depends how far you want to go.

    I'm mostly modeling in Archicad and C4D. I want to place my model in the satellite maps that are shown in Google Earth or Apple Maps. Please take a look at this video where it shows a sketch of a 30 meter tall building in the site:

    What I am designing right now is a residential complex in a site that there are currently occupied by buildings. So I have to remove the current buildings to place what I have designed.
