Had a user e-mail as ask about importing a MapAList map into Google My Maps....here was my response:
Good news - you can definitely take a MapAList map and save it to Google My Maps. I say definitely because I tested it this morning with one of my own maps. All you have to do is download the KML file associated with your MapAList map and import it into Google My Maps. Here's the process.
1. View your map in MapAList by selecting "Maps" and then "View".
2. Click on the little floppy disk icon below your map and save the KML file for your map to your computer.
3. Open Google My Maps.
4. Click on the "Create New Map" link.
5. Click on the "Import" link.
6. Click on the "Choose File" button and select the KML file that you downloaded from MapAList.
Google will then import your map into My Maps. You can do with it what you like.
Hmmm...I just gave it another test and was able to successfully import 137 entries very quickly without issue. Did you zoom in after you imported? Google Maps does not automatically change the zoom level for you, so if you have, for example, 100 entries in the same city they might look like they are on top of each other. Zooming in would show the differentiation.
How many entries are you attempting to upload?
If you still have an issue, please e-mail your KML file to email@example.com and we will dig into if further.
I've got just over 300 entries. I would say it adds around 150, yeah. I can see that inside the KML file it has all the entries, but when I upload it to Google Maps it only displays the first 150 or so entries.
I was looking at your thread on importing My Maps into google. I am trying to do something similar. I want to import a large floor plan for our factory and make it into a map. It doesn't seem real clear on how to do that.
How can I import a floor plan into google maps?? is it possible.
The import process worked, but the addresses of the placemarks were changed when I viewed them in My Maps. They were typically moved to the address of the house across the street or to the next door house.
I tried this and it did upload many of my pins but it appears that it does not pin duplicates. My pins were members from certain locations. Some were towns, some only provided states.....so it was possible to have 2 or more from a single state but it appears to only have made a pin for each unique location.
it seems to have imported all of my 311 different addresses but in some cases, if two addresses are near each other, it shows only one pin. This is a problem for me because i need to see all the pin also if they are very close. Is there the possibility to solve this issue?
Tnks for your help
They are in the same city but sited in different addresses. I tried recording some of them directly in google maps by hand and it's ok. Sure in these cases i've to zoom; but for me it's ok. Is there the possibility to do that with your utility? It's very important for me.
Tnks a lot for your help
edit: i've found another utility that make exactly what i need. Thanks anyway
I might just be blind but I don't see a floppy disk icon anywhere on my screen. What am I missing? I am on the view map screen and the map looks fine. But the only things I can do are change the map, refresh it, share it and support mapalist but that's about it?
