Hello everyone
I have the shape file format utm32 and I have to import them into my
database PostGIS ,
with this command : shp2pgsql -s 23032 point.shp point | psql postgis
Some of these files during import have caused the error :
invalid byte sequence for encoding utf 8 0xe02076
this error can also happen if the byte sequence does not match the encoding
expected by the server, which is controlled by "client encoding"

My database is enconding UTF8.
