WFS 1.1.0: feature identifiers, gml:id and the FeatureId paramater in GetFeature

In section '7.1 Feature and Element Identifiers' the WFS 1.1.0 specification describes how to deal with feature identifiers.

WFS 1.1.0: support for srsName format models


In the Netherlands we have a profile on WFS 1.1.0. It is still in use. For this profile we have test tooling. The tooling requests a server, using the srsName with the following notation: "EPSG:28992". This is based on page 36 of the WFS 1.1.0 spec.

-- start quote page 36 --

Any valid URI value can be assigned to the srsName attribute. However, in order to enhance interoperability, a web feature service must be able to process srsName attribute values with the following format models:

EPSG:<EPSG code>

Here are some internal technology projects of OGC staff and members that evolve at their own pace.

Geospatial Business Intelligence (GeoBI) DWG

The GeoBI DWG has published an initial white paper, but it is now time to take the process forward and determine what action to take. This is an interesting period in the development of the web and there are opportunities for organisations to pull data from a variety of sources to add understanding to their business operations. Governments are

Please help to get correct BBOX filter in GetFeature

Can you help to clarify one thing:I have a viewing area: The latitude is from 35 to 40and the longitude is from 170 to 190.Yes, it's across the +-180 longitude line.Using CRS84, what's the right format/value in BBOX?It looks BBOX is not supporting 360 degree longitude.How can I get the right BBOX using +-180 based system?Thanks.

Does the MIME type "text/xml; subtype=gml/3.1.1" violate the MIME RFC?

I was recently writing and CITE testing an implementation of WFS 1.1.0 and happened to be using the Jersey implementation of the JAX-RS framwork - unfortunately the Jersey framework doesn't allow the MIME type to be set to "text/xml; subtype=gml/3.1.1" for output (Content-Type header), claiming that the forward slash in the media type parameter "subtype=gml/3.1.1" is an illegal or unexpected character in that location.

GML simple feature profile mime type in WFS

Hi all,


we want our WFS to export both 'regular' GML 3.2 and simple feature profile GML 3.2. However the latest version of the simple feature profile document no longer seems to list the mime types that should be used as output formats in the WFS. An older document does describe the use of "text/xml; subtype=gml/3.1.1/sfgml" as an output format. Is this still valid, and is this described in a document somewhere? Or is there a reason why this no longer exists?

SLD for WFS?

Hi all,


is there a standard/specification/possibility to apply a default style on wfs features like the SLD for WMS? I know that the style definition for wfs features could be done on the client side, but I'd like to deliver my wfs features with a certain default style.


Thanks in advance.


WFS-Transaction (WFS-T) tutorial

The basic Web Feature Service allows querying and retrieval of features. A transactional Web Feature Service (WFS-T) allows creation, deletion, and updating of features. OpenGEO's web resource "Developing OGC Services Based Web Applications with GeoExt" includes a tutorial titled Committing Feature Modifications Over WFS-T.
