This file is a .kmz file contained with a Zip folder. You will download a Zip file, extract the .kmz file and open the file with Google Earth.
The file is zipped. So the process is as follows;
Extract the content of the zipped file to a folder on your hard drive or better still to Google Drive (right click on the zipped folder and select Extract).
The extracted file is a .kmz file which can only be opened in Google Earth. This file is too big for Google Maps.
If you have Google Earth installed then you can double click on the .kmz file and it should just open in Google Earth.
Then choose which ever layers you wish to view off the menu on the left.
