Is there a way to plot a big (700) list of towns on Google Maps. I don't have any geographic reference, just their names in a .csv file. I've tried uploading using their help pages but it just seems to do nothing and I wondered if it's looking for more attribute in the file?

    do you have a State/Province for the towns? Mar 3, 2015 at 17:02
  • Google Fusion Tables would be another solution. It will import a CSV table and automatically geocode place names. Mar 3, 2015 at 23:25

  1. Get Google Earth Pro -- it's free now.
  2. Make sure your CSV has column headings such as City and State.
  3. Use the File -> Import feature and select your CSV
  4. Step through the wizard and boom you have a solution.
  • Great user friendly solution, still works!
