I have a shapefile that I would like to export into a kml to share it with my colleagues.
This shapefile contains a few hundred polygons. I have QGIS 2.2.0 on Windows 7.
I would like to create a kml that somehow keeps the same style as my shapefile. Indeed, in QGIS, I have a simple category style applied to a certain field ("Soil Type"). When I export the shapefile as a kml (after renaming the "Soil Type" field as "Name" to have it as a title of my kml polygons), the kml created doesn't have any sub-folders per Soil Type. As a result, if I want to set a color per Soil Type, I need to manually create folders in Google Earth, move every single polygons into the different new folders, then apply a style to the folders. It works, but it takes a long time when you have a lot of polygons. Another solution I found is to create a different kml of each "Soil Type" in QGis. But again, it's not very efficient.
Is there any solution more efficient to organize the kml created from a shapefile in QGIS?
