    You can use http://mapserver.org/ to convert to a swf dynamically or use arcgis to convert the file to an illustrator file which you cna then convert ot any format you require.
    You could also use http://www.gdal.org/ogr2ogr.html will take the shp file and convert to gml (xml like text that can be read and parsed to drawing instructions) but this is a bit more complicated to do and not worth it unless you have a lot of maps to process and want fine tuned control over the output.
