Is there a way to builk convert mapinfo files to a new projection (and output in the same mapinfo format) without using the mapinfo sdk?

I did look into ogr2ogr but I couldn't get it to work even when I added the to/from epsgs that I needed to the csv files

I need to convert from EGSP 28356 -> EPSG 3857

  • When you tried using ogr2ogr in what way did it not work? Did it export the files but not change the projection? Did it just fail completely?

This should work

ogr2ogr -f "MapInfo File" {outfile} -t_srs EPSG:3857 {in file}
