domsmooth created the topic: KML Size limits
Hi there. I wanted to know if there was a size limit for KML files when displaying a kml in a map. I had to update a kml which ended up making it 2245KB, where it was previously 1125KB. The amended kml does not display, whereas the previous one worked just fine.

If this is the case, the documentation is not clear on exactly how to use paths to make use of multiple kml files. How does one display multiple paths in a map, if that is the case? Is that orchestrated from the Paths tab, to assign the paths to the map, rather than drawing the paths from the map tab?

I look forward to you response.

Hi.

developers.google.com/maps/documentation/javascript/kmllayer

Section "Size and complexity restrictions for KML rendering"

I give ability to show your KML files, and draws objects.
When you enter full URL to KML file, and publish path - I'll show it.
If you need to show more than one KML file - just create the new path.

If you don't want to use KML file, and want just draw the polyline (or the other objects) - you can use drawing ability.

It is two different ways to show map objects.

Paths are like placemarks. As many as you want. I don't control limits. It does Google Maps API
