In Google SketchUp you can model in either Perspective mode, or Parallel Projection.
Both have their benefits.
For instance, if you need to model in a really narrow or enclosed space...
... you can adjust your field of view to a high number like 60.
If you are working with layers of information that you would like to align...
... turning on Parallel Projection can be handy.
Here I'll draw some geometries on a flat plane...
... that's positioned precisely on top of other parts of my model.
Once that is done...
... I'll use the Drape sandbox tool to drape the lines onto this surface.
