Import Address Lists Into Google Earth

Google Earth offers an address import feature as part of its “pro” application, which is currently only available for Windows. However, there are a number of tools out there that will perform this conversion for free and produce a KML file, which you can import into Google Earth or other mapping applications. One such tool is BatchGeoCode. It is completely web-based, uses an easy Excel template (provided), and gives you the option to download the finished KML file. The only limitation is a 100-address limit for the conversion.

For fun, I mapped the addresses of the University High School and Catlin Gabel Faculty and saved the images from the same altitude (29 miles).

    Richard — My head asked me to do an analysis of where faculty lived and as I was trying to import the data into Google Earth, I happen upon this link — very nice. Third hit in google when I searched for import address data into google earth.

    Thanks!
