I want to query selected propertynames from a list of Typenames in a GeoServer service.

I could find an example from OGC WFS 1.1.0 Implementation Specification ( PDF document page 80 Example 10) which is not working for me. Here is the example:

Example 10

Query some properties of a list of feature types. In this case, the attributes WKB_GEOM and TILE_ID are fetched for the INWATERA_1M feature type and all the attributes of feature type BUILTUPA_1M are fetched.


When I try to implement this I got the following error:

"Requested property: PropertyName1 is not available" The possible propertyName values are:[PropertyName1, , , , , ]"

It would be great if someone give me a working example for GeoServer.

  • can you provide a link to the spec you mean? There is no WMS 1.1.0 and the WFS 1.1.0 (OGC-04-094) does not have an example on either physical or virtual page 80.

  • I think that link was not the right one, the document name is: Web_Feature_Service_WFS_02-058.pdf, the correct link is : google.com/…
