I have a bunch of addresses that I need to add to one of my Google Maps.

Google Maps just says to add each and everyone of them manually, but it's a lot of of work to do this manually.

Does someone know of a tool that takes a bunch of addresses as input (eg. TXT), and adds the plots in a given Google Map?

This question came from our site for computer enthusiasts and power users.

I don't have time to write a full answer right now, but you should be able to import KML files into Google Maps. A KML file is basically a plain text list of lat/long coordinates wrapped up in some XML. There should be plenty of documentation of the specs online. If you need to go from addresses, not so sure... – nhinkle Dec 15 '12 at 10:28
Thanks for the tip. I'll check if KML means that locations are definitely imported in a given Google Map or if the user must load the KML file to view the plots. – user2412 Dec 15 '12 at 10:32

@AndrewLott it should have been the other way around. This question predates the duplicate, half a year. – Jacob Jan Tuinstra Jun 29 '13 at 17:12
