You can use OGR outputformats. Add something like this to your mapfile

  NAME "geojson"
  MIMETYPE "application/json; subtype=geojson"

Add to your LAYER or MAP METADATA, "wfs_getfeature_formatlist” "geojson"

And then in your WFS call add &outputformat=geojson.

This will return geojson directly in the browser, if you need it to download, you can change the FORMATOPTION to FORM=ZIP

See http://mapserver.org/output/ogr_output.html for more detail.

Hi list!

I wanted to have GeoJSON as an output format. Now, if I got the documentation right ( http://mapserver.org/it/development/rfc/ms-rfc-62.html, http://mapserver.org/it/development/rfc/ms-rfc-36.html), I should prepare a template for each layer I'd like to serve as GeoJSON.
Is this right or is there a way that MapServer guesses a reasonable format directly from the data, as it does for GML?
Indeed, http://mapserver.org/it/output/template_output.html says "There are other, simpler, ways to output some of these formats using MapServer".
Does this simpler way exist for GeoJSON, too?
