    Streetscape drawing programs

    Hi,
    My name is Avi. Im a female, urban planning student in Western Australia.
    I was wondering if anyone knows of any free/reasonably use to use softwares or online sites that I can draw streetscapes and cross sections in?
    I know of streetmix, but i want something else. Also, Im trying to learn how to do it GoogleSketup, so if anyone has any suggestions on how to do it that'd be muchly appreciated. Thanks

    Hiyah Avi, Trimble sketchup is more than enough to create great streetscapes in 3D and also they are easily convertible to cross-sections or in plans. Along with Sketchup comes the "Layout" software, which facilitates presentations, dimensioning and annotations, both sketchup and Layout got great compatibility as they come in the same package from Trimble.
    Or Autocad also can help if you want accurate plans and sections, but for my purpose, Sketchup gets the work done fairly quickly!

    Cheers
