Import “starred places” into a My Map

There is a situation, you have saved several places in Google Maps and you want to display all those places in one map in Google Maps. How to do it? It is a way to do it, by using My Maps. However, there is no way to add them through My Maps directly. Here the tips from this link to do it:

  1. Export them using Google Takeout
    https://www.google.com/settings/takeout
  2. Export them from “Google Maps (My Places)”, not from “Bookmarks”. They will be downloaded as a GeoJSON file.
  3. Use this site to convert the file to KML GeoJSON
