What are filters?

Filters are configurable elements of GeoEvent Services that filter (or remove from the streaming data) GeoEvents that do not satisfy specified criteria. Filters are generally attribute filters, spatial filters, or a combination of both attribute and spatial, although GeoEvent Server product macros such as $DEFINITION_NAME, for example, enable GeoEvent filtering by properties such as the name of the GeoEvent Definition associated with the current GeoEvent.
