Geographic Information Systems Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for cartographers, geographers and GIS professionals. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I have the opengeo suite installed and have defined my new workspace, data store and layer... No problem there.

Geoserver is serving out my map as a WMS layer and I can browse the data using GeoExplorer no problem. WFS is not an option here as I have hundreds of thousands of lines being displayed.

What I am after is the ability to click on a item info tool and draw a bounding box and get info on the items that fall within the bounding box rather than a single click.

Is this currently available? I've trawled all the demo's but as yet found nothing (surprisingly).

Thanks for looking!

you can still use a WFS for the querying –  iant Jul 15 '13 at 14:55
