Category:Web Services clients/WFS

My employer has several WFS with very large datasets.
(Example, this one: https://www.dov.vlaanderen.be/geoserver/dov-pub/Boringen/wfs )
If you add this as caching WFS all the data will be loaded, and will be incomplete.
If you request this as a non-caching WFS, the WFS won't be updated any more.
If you load only the data within a boundingbox, you can't update bbox anymore.

I think a refresh WFS bbox button or context-menu option or something similar would be a relative simple solution, that will allow the users to reload the data of WFS-layer without having to add it again into the project and losing all configuration.

Clarification: on 2.8.x once a non-caching WFS been loaded at full extent it won't be reloaded anymore.

#2 Updated by Giovanni Manghi over 7 years ago

  • Resolution set to not reproducable
  • Status changed from Open to Closed

Since the report the wfs client has been overhauled, and options changed/removed. The available "only request features overlapping..." works as expected now.
