I have marked some points and used symbology in ArcGIS/QGIS but when I export the file to kml, the color/symbology changes and only single color/symbol remains.

Is there any possible way that the symbol/color that I use in ArcGIS or QGIS may retain in kml as well?

I just added symbology via ArcGIS and it was done. NO Idea what was the issue. Methodology:

  1. go to layer properties->symbology->categories->give symbols and colors.
  2. using conversion tool, convert "layer to kml"

I used ArcGIS 9.3 for this.
