Connect to a WFS service

WFS, or Web Feature Services, is an OGC standard web service for geospatial data. With a query endpoint, Koordinates is able to scan and add data from public WFS services. We are also able to add data from WFS services that have a username and password.

Owning Groups are used to categorise and manage permissions on data. Don't worry if you're not sure—you'll be able to change the Owning Group before importing any data into your data service.
