Application level
Application ISO 19142 describes the interface for a Web Feature Service (WFS). WFS allow a client to access and perform transactions on geographic features independent of the underlying data store. These WFS implementations allow clients to edit geographic features online and store the changes to the underlying data store.
Conformance classes Simple WFS
Basic WFS
Transactional WFS
Locking WFS
Implementation benefits WFS allow a client to retrieve features or values of features (attribute data) from an underlying data store, and also to access the features to modify or delete features. With WFS the data can be stored in any database or as a shapefile on a server, for example, and the same operations can be performed on the data. This allows the user to query and edit data without having to consider the format of the data.
Products deegree 3.3 is an example of an OGC compliant open source implementation of the WFS interface.
