I've georeferenced a list of adresses on Google My Maps, I'd like to transfer them to QGIS so I can create a better map with them.

When I export a KML or KMZ file from My Maps and open it on QGIS, I only get a table containing the infos, not a vector o Shapefile, none of the addresses are georeferenced.

What could I do?

    Welcome to GIS.SE. Could you explain your steps on exporting from Maps and importing in QGis in detail? – Erik Jan 29 '19 at 13:49
  • On the MyMaps editor, I click on Export to KMZ/KML, then I drag to file to QGIS – Guillaume Jan 29 '19 at 13:58
  • Have you tried importing into QGis using a dialogue? Have you tried using a different format for export/import (if there are some available, haven't used My Maps before)? – Erik Jan 29 '19 at 14:12
  • Yes I tried adding it as a vector or as a raster, and all I get is a table. – Guillaume Jan 29 '19 at 14:20
  • Mymaps only lets me export as KML/KMZ – Guillaume Jan 29 '19 at 14:20
