Nowadays i'm working with Mapcript / Mapserver. I would like to know how to used WFS (Web Feature Service) with ASP.NET.

I think i need to use WCF, right? Is there any tutorial or framework?

You don't need WCF to use Mapscript. You need Mapserver and IIS to run C# Mapscript. – George Aug 7 '11 at 23:06

I'm sure there are many ways. Personally i use openlayers javascript api to query everything i need from my WFS service. Then you can pass this information onto the backend (.NET).

Ok! I think this is the way, but how can i implement WFS in .NET? – Michel Andrade Jun 8 '11 at 17:30
By implement do you mean call? – CaptDragon Jun 8 '11 at 17:42
I mean, how to expose the proprieties of my map by mapscript/mapserver using WCF. There is a pattern, right? By WFS you mean using WCF? – Michel Andrade Jun 8 '11 at 18:45
Mapserver already accept calls like any webserver. You don't need to wrap it up in another webserver. I'm not sure why you need WCF in this picture. – George Aug 7 '11 at 23:05
