Web Feature Service Gazetteer

Short Title: 
Landesvermessung und Geobasisinformation Brandenburg (LGB)
The Web Feature Service Gazetteer (WFS-G) delivers spatial data in XML format, including GML version 2.11. He can be used to search for objects (eg, home addresses, place names, etc.), their coordinates and geographical names. With this information, each client can be positioned quickly to a selected area. Initially, the Gazetteer service only for digital directories with point coordinates was used. It now also be mapped objects with linear or planar geometries.
