  Description     : lightweight and fast WFS-T server

TinyOWS is a lightweight and fast implementation of the OGC WFS-T
specification. Web Feature Service (WFS) allows querying and retrieval
of features. The transactional profile (WFS-T) allows inserting, updating
or deleting such features.

>From a technical point of view WFS-T is a Web Service API in front
of a spatial database. TinyOWS is deeply tied to PostgreSQL/PostGIS
because of this.

TinyOWS implements strictly OGC standards and pass successfully all
WFS OGC CITE tests (and even beta ones).

TinyOWS is part of MapServer Suite, but provided as a distinct module
(i.e you could use it in conjunction with MapServer and MapCache, or
as a standalone app). But both MapServer and TinyOWS could use the same
configuration file, if you want to (or native TinyOWS XML config file).
