SketchUp is one of Google's side projects. It is a 3D-modeling program that allows you to create 3D graphics that you can combine with Google Earth real-world locations. A "silent install" SketchUp requires no input from you the user whatsoever. This is not a default option in SketchUp, so you will have to create your own .bat file that tells the installer program which choices to make during the installation process.
