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. Aug 7, 2011 at 23:06

I hope this helps: http://www.paolocorti.net/2006/09/20/mapserver-tutorial-for-c-mapscript-asp-net/


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? Jun 8, 2011 at 17:30
  • By implement do you mean call?

    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. Aug 7, 2011 at 23:05
