I want to pull data from Berlins Geo portal (FIS BROKER). When I do the query in the browser (firefox) or through FME Workbench, it returns fine:

Eg.: https://fbinter.stadt-berlin.de/fb/wfs/data/senstadt/s_wfs_alkis_ortsteile?service=WFS&version=2.0.0&request=GetFeature&TYPENAMES=fis:s_wfs_alkis_ortsteile&srsName=urn:ogc:def:crs:EPSG:6.9:25833&BBOX=390812,%205821130.01,%20392562,%205819077.24

When I add a layer in QGIS, it loads everything…

Could somebody help me with this?

  • Did you use the option to restrict to area of interest

  • Yup, in the data source manager, 'Only request features overlapping the view extent'

  • ah yeah... if you set up the connection that option is checked by default. thats neat, but then you cant zoom in/out without downloading more data then you need. Have you been able to bbox wfs urls?

  • You could also write a query

'Only request features overlapping the view extent' while you load the wfs do the work!

  • i d prefer to actually define the request within coordinates... see prev post. it prevents from downloading more if you zoom out.
