Conversion of Shapefile to KML with Shp2earth

Shp2earth is a plug-in for open source MapWindow GIS. An evaluation copy is available for free which allows the conversion of up to 500 features. Users can add Shapefiles into MapWindow GIS in any coordinate system, customize the colours, symbols and labels and convert to a geographic WGS 1984 KML file. Unlike other utilities, this one allows users to transfer the label information and in Google Earth have the choice to keep the labels turned on or off. Users can also select individual labels to appear. Unfortunately, it doesn’t support thematic mapping (advanced symbology).
