You can also use GDAL/OGR directly (which is what QGIS uses behind the scenes). It requires a special driver, but if you get it via OSGEO4W, that is included. Command line would look something like: ogr2ogr -f kml -select desired,attribute,fields outfile.kml infilegeo.gdb filegeolayername There are some kml-specific options too, see ...
Once you have loaded your shape file in qgis, right click on it in the legend, select save as, then select 'Keyhole markup language' as your format, spatial ref. sys. Must be set to epsg 4326. Then select a file path, where the kml will be saved. A little under this, theres an option export symbology. You should select the option 'export feature symbology'. ...
As Sercan says this sounds an awful lot like coordinate systems not lining up properly. When you zoom to the separate layers are you ending up with stupid scale readings? If so you probably haven't set up the correct transformations and coordinate systems.
You can: Create your own solution with Leaflet http://leafletjs.com/ and one of the plugins from a list below http://leafletjs.com/plugins.html#overlay-data Use http://umap.openstreetmap.fr/ with external data overlay. Check layers. It's not as easy as paste a link into google map search, but much more power-full. Yuo could upload your data or use a link ...
Use turf.js for this, the functions union and erase in particular. Make a union of all your polygons (or at least the ones that are within the current viewport), then erase the result from the polygon that covers the current viewport. The result will be the inverted selection you're looking for.
In answer to the original request Just in case you can't access QGIS, I've created three separate shapefiles and put them on dropbox. The projection of these shapefiles is EPSG:4326 https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/71658964/miconesia.zip Another dataset you may also be interested in is the WMS service GSJ CCOP Combined Bedrock and Superficial Geology ...
What kind of projection systems do you use for your layers? I think your layers have different projection systems.
I think you should have a look at cshapes it... "provides historical maps of state boundaries and capitals in the post-World War II period". You can download a shapefile and query the data using the fields containing the year to evaluate how country shapes have changed over time. I found this website by first looking on the PennLibraries website.
