I am attempting to get some WFS 2.0 INSPIRE data from the Finnish meteorological institute into a table format of some kind. Is there any software which can easily grab the attribute data for the WFS features I request? Currently, I am just running the queries from the browser but I am not very familiar with XML so I am having difficulties parsing the resulting document (I'm using R) into a useable format. I need a significant amount of historical information which generally precludes doing this in excel, although I may have to do that if I can't figure out another way to do it. I've also tried to grab the geo features directly in QGIS with the WFS 2.0 plugin, but always seem to get a 'bad request' server response when attempting to execute a stored query. Is there a simple way to get the data from the XML document into a tabular format, or a way to parametrize my own query to get the data I need and nothing else?
If you are interested in trying the service, you need to register an API key which is free.
