Is there a solution to request the GML layer from Geoserver with filter like using bbox:


The result will be specific filtering the bounding box (lat/lon), based on bbox parameter that user entered.

The Result:

<wfs:FeatureCollection xsi:schemaLocation="
        <tiger:poi fid="poi.4">
                <gml:Point srsName="">
                  <gml:coordinates decimal="." cs="," ts=" 

The problem now, I want to filter the data based on the <tiger:NAME>lox</tiger:NAME>, already tried with entered the tiger:NAME=lox as a parameter when request, the result just same like when enter no parameter. Is there a solution for this?

Based on Filter Encoding with Spatial Filter within WFS-Request and Geoserver Filter. I found that there is a parameter named filter and the value can enter like this:

You need a filter - try something like:

<wfs:GetFeature service="WFS" version="1.1.0"
  <wfs:Query typeName="topp:states">
          <gml:Envelope srsName="">
             <gml:lowerCorner>-75.102613 40.212597</gml:lowerCorner>
             <gml:upperCorner>-72.361859 41.512517</gml:upperCorner>

Thank you for your response, actually already know about that, but what I'm currently didn't know is what is the parameter for the filter thing. I added an answer for that based on my research on OSGeo – Crazenezz May 28 '12 at 8:05
