I am requesting some features as GeoJSON from GeoServer. Can I specify the coordinate precision in my request? I am getting 8 decimals and really only need 3. I'd like to reduce the amount of data in the response and this could be a nice solution. My feature request looks like below.


  • At least it is not a feature that is defined in the WFS standard docs.ogc.org/is/09-025r2/09-025r2.html. The purpose of the WFS is to deliver native data without processing it (despite re-projecting to other coordinate system).

You can set the number of decimal places in output on the global settings page. See the manual for more details.
