I have a shapefile that desrbibes the post/prior routes from/to a certain venue. The white lines are the routes and each segment has a different foot traffic value. The segment in the image has a value of 5923 for example. enter image description here

Is there any way to edit this shapefile in Google Earth in such a way that each value will be of a different color?

Like in a gradient, or a certain color would fit a range, for example <6k visits is blue, 6k-10k visits is green and so on.

  • Are you working in Google Earth Pro or just Google Earth online ? There are two different programs .

  • Thanks for the hint, that GE actually is able to load shape-files, up to now I always exported .kml from QGIS.

Have you had a look at the dialogue when you drag&drop a shapefile into GE?
