After creating a shp file with attributes containing Turkish characters like ş,ç,ü.., Upon exporting it as another shp file , shp file having problem on displaying those character, Is there any way in ArcGIS to change encoding option like in QGIS. I can change system encoding from UTF-8 to windows 1254 and I have no problem on displays. But how do I do it in ArcGIS???
I am using 10.2.1 at the moment, as soon as I try to export a shp file with the newer version of the arcgis and test it out, I will indicate your answer as correct . Thanks again
Although I am uncertain about encoding character sets beyond utf8, I am sure you would have more success if you moved away from using shapefiles (a close to 25 year old technology) and migrated your data into geodatabases.
My sympathies. Yes, it is a fact that for many other systems, the shapefile seems to have become the de-facto standard for interoperability.
But there must be other ways of getting stuff into and out out the Schlumberger software.. Have you looked at data interop?
Please take a look at the following technical article. I believe this will resolve the issue for you:
I hope this helps!
