hey all, i am in need of a good program that will give me a "top view" kind of like CAD or some type of blueprint software, and it has to work on a mac as well. we have a laptop here at work but have a hard time finding compatible software. please help. thanks.

and something other than google sketchup, we are using it now, but when you do a top view, all the models are flat. thanks!

maybe I'm not understanding- wouldn't the point of a plan view be that everything is flat?

ive done a little research, and found the following programs that may work...
i am currently download some demo versions of a couple of them, i will let you know how it goes. any other programs that are good to use for "plan view"? thanks!!

How much are you looking to spend?
Are you using GSU or SketchUp Pro?

cost is no factor, it is for my workplace as they will be paying for it. i just need something that will work. thanks..
mac draft i found really sucks, turbocad says it will work on mac, but the version i got looks like it is pc only (.exe file), so i am still needing some help!!

ProLandscape is some of the best software you can buy for landscape design.
Vectorworks is a professional CAD program that is used by some architects and landscape architects. They have specialized versions for each.
