I was looking for a simple KML file anyone knew of that I could just easily import and overlay onto Google Earth. I know Google Earth already seems to show postal code regions under government data, but they arn't shaded and I don't know how to make them shaded...and every explanation I find involved things quite above my current skill level (although I'm open to learning).
I'd would prefer to not use anything involving GIS too much either as that is way above my skill level and the last GIS products I used by a well known company that makes them...were very very laggy.
Essentially, I'm looking for something I can import into Google Earth that is like the maps at http://www.usnaviguide.com/zip.htm. Now they do admittedly have a feed at http://maps.huge.info/zipv0.pl?ZIP=90210, but I have no idea how to graph or plot that (suggestions welcome though).
I did find this which was nice: http://www.filosophy.org/post/17/zipcodes_in_kml/ but once again not shaded.
1) Do you know of a shaded KML file that is reasonably accurate for zip codes I can import into Google Earth? By the way, I am aware zip codes do constantly change...I also don't want the TIGER files...I'd prefer the actual postal codes if possible.
2) Could you lead me (realize I know very little) in the direction of perhaps making/shading these outline type files myself with some easy software? (I realize this might be more of a gis.stackexchange.com question, but they seem WAY over my head over there).
