sorry for the stupid question. I`m new here, I`ve never worked with GMap.

I created a Map with ArcMap and I have to import it to GMap because of an company. 

Is it possible to make this without any programing knowledge? If yes, how?


Or can me maybe write a short tutorial how it works?

Please help me, it`s very important!


Thank You!

Without (rather profound) programming knowledge it is not possible. Basically you need to extract the data from the ESRI shape-file, and then show it in GMap.

I did it, using shapelib (there is a .NET wrapper available - ) to read the data from the shapefile, then you can display it in layers as you need it.
