       v.in.wfs
       v.in.wfs	--help
       v.in.wfs	  [-lr]	  url=string  output=name   [name=string[,string,...]]
       [srs=string]	 [maximum_features=integer]	 [start_index=integer]
       [--overwrite]  [--help]	[--verbose]  [--quiet]	[--ui]

   Flags:
       -l
	   Download  server capabilities to 'wms_capabilities.xml' in the cur-
	   rent	directory and exit

       -r
	   Restrict fetch to features which touch the current region

       --overwrite
	   Allow output	files to overwrite existing files

       --help
	   Print usage summary

       --verbose
	   Verbose module output

       --quiet
	   Quiet module	output

       --ui
	   Force launching GUI dialog

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

       output=nameA [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	 capa-
	   bilities 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).
