Hi all, I hope it's okay to ask geomason questions here. The geomason ShapeFileImporter read method requires a URL. However, my Windows computer converts spaces in URLs - really the file path - to "%20" which then causes a FileNotFoundException when I try to run code. I can fix this by doing a string substitution, but I was wonder what the right way/long term solution is for this problem.
