       [--quiet]  [--ui]

   Flags:
       -l
           Download  server  capabilities  to ’wms_capabilities.xml’ in the current directory and

       -r
           Restrict fetch to features which touch the current region

       --overwrite

       --help
           Print usage summary

       --verbose

       --quiet
           Quiet module output

       --ui
           Force launching GUI dialog

   Parameters:
       url=string [required]
           Base URL starting with ’http’ and ending in ’?’

       output=name [required]
           Name for output vector map

       name=string[,string,...]
           Comma separated names of data layers to download

       srs=string
           Specify alternate spatial reference system (example: EPSG:4326)
           The given code must be supported by the server, consult the capabilities file

       maximum_features=integer
           Maximum number of features to download
           (default: unlimited)

       start_index=integer
           Skip earlier feature IDs and start downloading at this one
           (default: start with the first feature)

DESCRIPTION

       v.in.wfs imports OGC WFS maps (Web Feature Service) from external servers.

EXAMPLES

       Import of world cities with population > 1 million:

       # run in Latitude-Longitude location (EPGS code 4326):
       # download geonam_gt1M layer:
       v.in.wfs \
         url="http://mapserver.flightgear.org/ms?Service=WFS&request=GetFeature&version=1.0.0" \
         name=geonam_gt1M output=geonam_gt1M

       Download 25 ship wrecks from LINZ data service:
       (first create yourself a free API key at http://data.linz.govt.nz/p/web-services/)

       # run in LatLong location:
       URL=’http://wfs.data.linz.govt.nz/<PUT YOUR API KEY HERE>/wfs?’
       # download available layers to wms_capabilities.xml
       v.in.wfs -l url="$URL"
       From that file we learn that the shipwreck layer is called "v:x633"  and  that  EPSG  code
       4326 (LatLong WGS84) is a supported SRS for this data layer.
       v.in.wfs url="$URL" output=linz_hydro_25_wrecks name="v:x633" srs="EPSG:4326" max=25

REQUIREMENTS

       The OGR library on the system needs to be compiled with Xerces C++ XML Parser support (for
       GML).
