I am using QGIS 2.18. As suggested, I installed the MMQGIS plugin to help me geocode the csv file containing a list of addresses. I converted the file to utf-8 encoding format. But when i was trying to import the file, it said my file contains invalid characters. I checked my file and could't spot any.

  • What is the path of the file ? – gene Jan 21 '18 at 14:40
  • Use of UTF-8 encoding doesn't mean the data is UTF-8 encoded. You'd need to dump the string as hexadecimal from binary in order to locate the invalid data. – Vince Jan 21 '18 at 15:29
