My MapInfo TAB files have attributes with WindowsLatin1 encoding. Direct
conversion with ogr2ogr from Mapinfo formta into Spatialite seems to give wrong
encoding in the Spatialite database. I have not discoverd any direct way for
changing the encoding into utf-8 with GDAL yet. However, I feel that this way I
have reached a correct result:
- Convert from MapInfo into GML with ogr2ogr by using the configuration option
- Hand edit the resulting GML file and change it to have encoding="iso-8859-1"
- Convert this edited GML file into Spatialite.
Is this the correct way for handling this case?
