There's probably a term for this that I'm missing that would help me find the answer...
My question is similar to a previous question of mine. I am using GeoServer (as part of the OpenGeo stack) as a WFS server. Currently when I load my map it downloads the entire layer - roughly 10MB per layer, roughly 10 layers...it takes a while.
I would like it to work in the way that WMS does - only download enough to show what is needed.
I need to use WFS rather than WMS as I need to be able to click on polygons, edit their attributes etc.
Is there a word for this?
Is it possible with GeoServer/OpenGeo/GeoExt?
