After the digitalization of my raster map as per below:

enter image description here

I saved it in .geojson format and .kml format.

The geoJSON works fine:

but once I export as a kml and open (in Google MyMaps), then I have borders only:

In the Google Earth it looks the same.

Is there a step, which I forgot during my digitalization process?

It's still a filled polygon, however the symbology does not save along with the data. Therefore when you open it in Google Maps / Earth they apply a default or random symbology. You can change this in Google Earth using the following: right click the layer > properties > style, color, in Google MyMaps when you hover over the layer a paint bucket will appear, this lets you change the symbology.

  • Yes I can do, as you are saying, but it looks like I have to do it one by one.
