How can ArcGIS Editor for OpenStreetMap preserve Unicode data?

Oct 4, 2011 at 12:46 PM

Currently i am using ArcGIS Editor for open Street map 1.1 for conversion of OSM file to file Geodatabase. But after conversion geometry is perfect but there is no Unicode data available in the attribute table. Am i missing some thing?

I am particularly interested in the house numbers and buildings names.

Good question. The ArcGIS Editor for OSM absolutely supports the Unicode data. However, it is not extracting all of the data into the attribute table by default. To get at these additional values, run the OSM Attribute Selector tool and select the values of interest. Then you should be able to see these values in the table.

Update: Other users are also asking why the Name value is not included in the attribute table by default. In response to your query and theirs, we've logged a feature request to include the value in the table. See
