We're migrating from Mapinfo to GIS + PostGIS. I have a file questions about file conversion:
Is there any difference between importing directly from tab to PostGIS, compared with converting tab-shapefile-PostGIS? Do either approaches have accuracy issues? We have hundreds of tab files and there is a mix of lat/long and UTM projections.
What's the best way of converting multiple tab files to PostGIS at once? This is my (poor) attempt at using ogr2ogr:
for %f in (*.tab) ogr2ogr -f "PostgreSQL" PG:"host=myhost user=myloginname dbname=mydbname password=mypassword".
I do have the PostGIS shapefile and DBF loader installed but it only works for shapefiles.
