Viewing Shape files using GoogleEarth

I had some shape files and I wanted to show them on GoogleEarth, I couldn't do this directly as GoogleEarth supports only KML (Keyhole Markup Language) file format.

I thought that it will be easy to convert shape files to KML, and I was right, … thanks to Tim Beermann.

He developed a tool to convert a shape file to KML file, he used completely open-source tools to develop his converter, and also he sharing it freely.
