Upload, display and share your KML, GPX or GeoJSON on Windy

Seems like a good idea!
It would be possible to see the wind animations corresponding to the day of the recording of the track?
@juven this is not possible, we don't hold historical data.

@ivo Very nice function. Would be great to display the weather history at the timestamps of the uploaded track.

NIce first try, but it doesn't retain the kml after putting it onto the display. Plus, it doesn't load a kml from the saved space. Keep working on it, thank you!
@pcgriffith You have to SAVE the file

I have the same problem.
Loaded a gpx file, saved it.
I see the track on the map as long as the upleader is open.
Once I hit the red X to close the uploader window - the track dissapear.
@koby-0 Please use the shareable link (share button) to access your track again.

I am looking to upload a KML made in GoogleEarth but I was hoping to use custom icons for the place marks.
Upon upload, the location co-ordinates are saved however Windy does not keep the custom icon - if I resort to a google earth icon Windy will display it. The icon is saved locally in my pictures. Is there a way to achieve this upload?
@andrew-crowe Send me a KML file somehow
@mrandall This is problem of Leaflet library and not easy to fix
@koby-0 We improved the uploader, now the track remains even after closing the uploader window.

@Simona-Polackova Thanks. Perfect.

You’ll have to save it as a .KMZ file to maintain your custom icons, waypoints, etc. It’s basically the same thing as a .KML extension, but in a zip file format that will save your customizations.

Amazing work! It would be cool to support more file formats and be able to view them on mobile version too!

@cana-0 what format is missing?

Great job people. Is there a way to show multiple kml files on the map at the same time? Switching between multiple kml files works just fine, but it would be great to work with them as with map layers (to turn layer combinations on and off and determine their order).

Excellent feature, thanks. Just tried it with KML files and it is really great. If I could pick on something, it would be that when refreshing, you have to upload the KML files again.

Hi, great feature, however it doesn't seem to be working for my kml file: https://www.windy.com/upload/5d66608c8992c4001abf5c25 . Same file works in other tools. Am I doing something wrong?

@ivo I have a website that converts the plain text of our flight plan into a couple of different formats. The main purpose is to convert the flight plan into html for use on the iPad. However, while I am doing that, I also convert the route it into kmz gpx. The kmz did not work, but the gpx did. This is fine in that I probably have too much more information than just the route in the .kmz file.
It would be great to be able to click on the gpx file attachment and open the file directly. Right now, I have to save the file to folders and then open the file from within Windy. Even better would be if I could create a link with a custom URL to open the route like I do with ForeFlight.
A minor complaint is that the route will not draw across the date line, but will go all the way around the world to intercept the next point on the other side.
I have not been a big Windy user, but discovered this looking for models for hurricane Dorian. Please take my comments in the context of the intention of trying to give some feedback of some improvements that would make this even better. I am very impressed with Windy!!
