>> Hi Francois
>> I've pointed the wms at the shapefile, configured a featuretype (used polygon style), however the shapefile only appears to have the lat/long and the basic metadata ID (not the urn). In addition, the shapefile doesn't appear to be kept up to date and is inconsistent. (I am using GN 2.4)
>> What script updates the shapefile, perhaps the updating isn't occurring regularly enough? Could you please advise?
