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

  4. Once download the KML file, can import it into the custom map.

GIS can be defined as a system designed to capture, store, manipulate, analyze, manage, and present all types of spatial or geographical data.

Below some links regarding the GIS that I mark, to be my reference in the future:
