Querying and labeling a WFS layer in Mapserver WFS client

For ogrinfo you have to do something like:

ogrinfo thefile.gml myns:xxxlayer -summary

It seems to me the property names include the namespace, so you should use the full names in LABELITEM etc. Did you try that?

Bart, thank you for a good starting point:

the  .gfs file is plain (perhaps too much :-):


The ogrinfo output of the .gml is even more plain (so there is clearly
something wrong):

1. myns:xxxlayer

The EPSG ows_metadata keyword is defined on the map level and present in the
.gml file, but not spit out in .gfs file (should it be?).

So much for now,
