#3773 closed defect (wontfix)

OGR pg driver should launder unicode characters

Reported by: relet Owned by: warmerdam
Priority: low Milestone: closed_because_of_github_migration
Component: OGR_SF Version: unspecified
Severity: normal Keywords:


The current implementation of LaunderName?() in the postgres driver for OGR ignores and preserves unicode characters. This turns field names like for example 'OMRÅDE' into 'omrÅde'.

Laundering should either

  • use proper case matching of unicode, e.g. using libunistring => 'område'
  • use replacement of unicode characters, e.g. => 'omraade' or 'omrade'
  • use improper replacement characters of unicode characters, e.g. => 'omr_de' or 'omrde' only if all else fails.
