I generated a set of maps of my region. Each municipality has some associated data. I would like to overlay that data on a google map and display them in a website. (I don't like the flash format)

Do you know any online services for the conversion of *.shp files into a format suitable with Gmap services?

This article should help.

And ogr2ogr can be used on the desktop to convert the data (reprojecting where necessary)
