Neo4j to Gephi import : Failed to invoke procedure Invalid UTF-8

I tried to import my data from Neo4j into Gephi but it doesn't work.

I have the following result in Neo4j :

Failed to invoke procedure apoc.gephi.add : Caused by: com.fasterxml.jackson.core.JsonParseException: Invalid UTF-8 start byte 0xfb at [Source: (apoc.export.util.CountingInputStream); line: 1, column: 136]

I ran into this issue at some point, if I recall correctly I had to scan my data and replace some special characters in one or more text fields

See this note for more and another way to potentially get around it. I prefer the streaming approach, but have used graphml as well, there are pros and cons of each.

In my experience any sizable dataset will have "interesting" characters in the text somewhere...
