I’ve already written about Google Earth and Maps to some extent during this class, but as I did use it for the last assignment I should write about it, and it’s come to my attention in the last week or so that I am not the only person who has experienced this difficulty.
Importing a map from Google Earth into Google Maps.
Here’s how do.
- First off! Get your kmz file which you created in Google Earth. Got it? Awesome.
- Next, let’s dig through Google’s options to take us back to Classic Google Maps.
- Now, let’s import that KMZ file:
- Select ‘My Places’
- Click on “Or create with classic My Maps” [note: if you click on “CREATE MAP” it takes you back to current Google Maps -_- ]
- Select “Import”
- Click on ‘Choose file’ and navigate to the file on your computer. Confirm your selection and select ‘Upload from file’
- Wait forever for your file to upload
- Enjoy your feeling of accomplishment
- Convert the old map into new Google Maps
