I have downloaded the geology data from the USGS website (http://pubs.usgs.gov/ds/781/OffshoreSantaBarbara/data_catalog_OffshoreSantaBarbara.html) and the .zip file comes with a .lyr file.
I have tried everything in my power to open this file on Google Earth - tried to convert it to .shp and .kml file using ArcToolbox - and nothing worked.
How can I use the style information contained in the .lyr file to visualize it on GE?
Edit: The problem I get when trying to convert to .kml is that I cannot find the saved file anywhere. It says that it was created, but I simply cannot find it.
When I first open the layer file it shows the red exclamation mark, but then I just add the .shp file and the image appears with the correct colors and symbols.
Then I try to convert using the ArcToolbox:
And I cannot find the file anywhere afterwards, although it says everything worked.
