Patrick: Is there also a space in the file path? What is the locale, I guess CP1252?
Best wishes, Roger Bivand Norwegian School of Economics Bergen, Norway Fra: Patrick Giraudoux Sendt: torsdag 15. februar, 07.45 Emne: readOGR does not read file names with accent Til: firstname.lastname@example.org Kopi: Roger Bivand Dear all, My plateform is Windows 7. I am meeting trouble when reading a shapefile with rgdal:readOGR when the file name includes an accent. For instance, readOGR("./track génét/gélinotte/2017/Trémontagne","trace_chaux_du_dombief.shp") is well read BUT readOGR("./track génét/gélinotte/2017/Trémontagne","tracé_chaux_du_dombief.shp") gives Error in ogrInfo(dsn = dsn, layer = layer, encoding = encoding, use_iconv = use_iconv, : Cannot open layer In both cases accents in the path are well accepted. The difference just come from accent in the filename. Any idea about a workaround (except trivial: manually changing accents to non accent ;-): I have tens of files to read)?
