Assuming that you want to open your final KML file in QGIS (?), you would have two solutions :

  • Styling your layer with data-defined values ;

  • Exporting two different layers and then applying them different styles.

  • I want to open the KML from Google Earth or other online maps tools (like map.geo.admin.ch). I'm unable to export KML with the Style of my points. When imported, the KML will show all data with the default symbol. Thanks for help! Sep 24, 2015 at 14:01
