Working with Qgis, I have a table representing streets. Attributes inlude street name, length, pavement and some others. Unfortunately, all names with ä or ö or ü display 'odd characters' like Ã1/4. When trying to replace these odd characters with real German ones, ALL streets in my list end up having the same name, instead of only replacing these odd characters. How can I replace only certain characters?
To change the strange letters, rightlick on the layer in the table of content, -> Properties, General tab. There you find the
Data source encoding combo box.
Depending on the source of your data,
System or some
windows codepage will bring you the correct display of the data.
