What is the Feature Service

The SkylineGlobe Server Feature Service streams point, polyline, and polygon feature layers from files and from the Oracle, SQL server, PostGIS and ArcSDE databases to remote TerraExplorer clients and any application that reads the standard OGC WFS protocol. The Feature Service can stream most TerraExplorer supported feature layer formats. It also supports advanced spatial and attribute queries from TerraExplorer and other WFS clients. With SGS’s support for WFS-T (Web Feature Service-Transactional), remote clients can edit (create, delete, and update features) the feature layer and save changes to the data source. SGS supports WFS versions 1.0.0 and 1.1.0.
