Supported Capabilities

Spectrum Technology Platform's OGC WFS allows a client to retrieve geospatial data encoded in GML. A client issues a Get Capabilities request to determine the list of feature types that a WFS offers, it issues a DescribeFeatureType request in order to obtain a description of one or more feature types, it then uses the description of the feature types to formulate a GetFeature operation.

The specific operations defined in the OGC WFS Specification are: GetCapabilities, DescribeFeatureType, GetFeature, GetFeatureWithLock, LockFeature, and Transaction. Spectrum Technology Platform includes a Basic OGC WFS: it is read only, and implements GetCapabilities, DescribeFeatureType, and GetFeature operations. GetPropertyValue, ListStoredQueries, and DescribeStoredQueries are also supported for versions 2.0.0 and 2.0.2.

These capabilities can be viewed using Spectrum Spatial Manager. For more information see Managing WFS Feature Types and Configuration.
