Known problems and faults

Due to the complexity of INSPIRE schemas, WFS services do not work perfectly in most client applications. We accept feedback on the functioning of WFS services in customer applications.

Because the INSPIRE schemas are so complex, we recommend that searches in WFS services should be as precisely defined as possible for a faster response.
