It’s not very simple to download your Google Maps data. In this article we will discuss How to download your Google Maps data. You can download your Google Maps data easily if you wish to create a backup or use a new map service. You are not required to search through your entire Google account’s data. Directly access the Google Maps desktop website and export your data.
We will show you how your Google Maps data are exporting and downloading, both on the website
Create a Google Maps export
To access your data, sign in to Google Maps on your computer. Then, in the top-left corner, next to the Search box, click the three-line menu icon.
- In the Search Google Maps box, click Menu.
- Select “Your Data in Maps” near the bottom.
- Scroll down to and select “Download Your Maps Data” on the following screen.
- Select the checkbox(es) next to the desired data.
You have the option of exporting
- Location History.

- Select the destination, the frequency, and the type of file.
Click one of the “Multiple Formats” items to view or change the file format for that item. You can select zip or tgz file type.
- Select a Delivery Method
You can choose to receive your data file via email or via your preferred cloud storage service, such as Google Drive, Dropbox, OneDrive, or Box. Select a delivery method from the “Delivery Method” drop-down box.
- Select a Frequency
Following that, you can either export your data once or schedule it to export every two months for an entire year. Consider using regular exports if you frequently save favourite locations or create custom maps.
- Select a File Size
Select the maximum file size between 1GB and 50GB. If the size of your data exceeds the size you specify, it will be split into multiple files.
- Once these items are selected, click “Create Export.”
- Google Maps Data Export is currently in progress.
The Export Progress box will then display a confirmation that the export is processing. This confirms the number of items you chose to export and provides the option to “Cancel Export” if you change your mind. Additionally, you can click “Create Another Export” to obtain any remaining items.
Additionally, an email notification should be sent to your Gmail account. This merely confirms that you have requested a file containing your personal information.
Email Export of Google Maps Data
The export process can take minutes to days, depending on the amount of Google Maps data you have. When the file is ready, you should receive an email to your Gmail account.
Bear in mind that for the purposes of this tutorial, we chose to receive our export via email. If you receive the same email, click either “Manage Exports” or “Download Your Files.”
Manage Exports takes you to a web page that displays the data you’ve chosen to receive along with a “Download” button. The Download Your Files option will take you to the same page as the previous one, but will also download the file automatically.
After obtaining the file, navigate to your Downloads folder and double-click it to open it. For each type of data you have chosen, you should view folders.
Downloaded Google Maps Data
If instead you choose to send your file to a storage service, you’ll get a link from the email notice you receive when the file is ready. Click the link, log in and access your file if necessary.
Wherever your Google Maps file is sent, you have a convenient backup you can hold on to. Moreover, you will have the files to import in another map service you need.
