I can't find any WFS implementations that support circle geometries for selection. There is the DWithin spatial selection but I can't find the specification of what is actually does. 1) Does it select objects where the geometry is entirely within the specified distance? Or 2) Does it select objects where some part of the geometry is within the specified distance?
