Lefebure.com / Software / Shape File DLL
This DLL will allow you to read and write ShapeFiles. See this thread for more information.
Shape files (a set of 3+ files) are an old standard format for storing data such as polygons or points. The files are binary, so they're more difficult to parse than ASCII based formats. I needed to get at the data in VB, and someone was nice enough to convert a parser from one language to another for me.
Note: If you have the option, I recommend using .KML files instead. They are easier to work with, don't have the 3 file requirement, and can store multiple types of data in one file.
