Using Web Feature Service Capabilities Through HTTP Request

The Web Feature Service (WFS) follows the OGC Web Feature Service standard, which defines how a client can retrieve geospatial data encoded in GML by submitting XML POST/GET requests through HTTP. Products that can access data from an OGC-compliant WFS server will work with the Spectrumâ„¢ Technology Platform WFS, products such as MapInfo Professional and MapXtreme or other vendor software.
