Hi,

Easiest method if you are talking about POINT co-ordinates (e.g. health facilities):

  1. Create a comma-delimited list with facility name (exactly as in the DHIS), Latitude and Longitude. Coordinates must be ISO standard using datum WGS-84 (the same datum used by all Global Navigation Systems like GPS, and used by all modern maps).

  2. For point co-ordinates, DHIS supports six decimals (equivalent to around 10cm precision) - that is the standard number of decimal for point data in most systems.

  3. Whether you create the comma-delimited file in Excel, a text editor etc does not matter - use what’s convenient for you. Make sure the facility name column is called “NAME”

  4. There is no need to generalise point coordinates the same way you might do it for high-precision line or polygon (area) features, so when you are ready with the file either convert it to GML format using the (cumbersome) method described in the DHIS2 manual, OR import it into a GIS package like QGIS.

  5. After creating the GML file, import it. Any mis-spelled name will show up during the import as having failed.

Hi Papa,

can you please tell us a bit more about what you are trying to do?

If you want to capture coordinates for events, you can enable that under program -> view program stages -> check “Capture coordinates”.

In Event capture, fields for latitude, longitude will then appear in the “add new event” screen.

Hello all,

Just to be sure and related to this topic, is there any way to capture event coordinates in a default way? I mean, is it possible to assign coordinates from an org unit to the events which are being captured in this org unit in an automatic way? For the moment, we have to introduce them manually with each event we register on one of our programs in order to make these events visible on GIS app.

I think this is not offtopic, but tell me if it is.

Thanks!!

Hi there,
We have added a new data value type called “Coordinates”. This will allow you to record coordinates just a normal data value. Is this what you are looking for?

Jason

Hi Jason,

What I am asking for is a little bit different (I don’t know if this is possible), I’ll try to explain myself:

Let’s say we are in Sierra Leone at the Ngelehun CHC. We are capturing data in the “Inpatient morbidity and mortality program”.

Currently, every new event registration requires us to introduce the coordinates of Ngelehun CHC manually, so my question is: Is there any way to automatize this? (The event coordinates we have to introduce every time for each event are the same as Ngelehun CHC coordinates)

I hope my question is more clear now.

Regards.

Hi Sergio,

I think this is configurable.

image

If you do not want to capture the coordinates of each event, you do not need to.

So for events which always have the same coordinates as the facility, it would seem that you would not need this. In certain use cases (others can describe more I think), the event may be registered at the facility, but actually took place some place different, such as in the community.

Regards,

Jason

Hi Jason,

Using GIS app you need to have coordinates on each event most of the time in order to use Thematic Layer and/or Event Layer on maps, and I understand what you say about “the event may be registered at the facility, but actually took place some place different, such as in the community” case scenario, but in the case we consider all the events take place at the facility where the events get registered, It would be helpful for the clerks who introduce the events data into the system to not have to introduce the same coordinates over and over for each patient they register. That’s why I’m asking if there is any way (maybe using custom forms??) to make the facility coordinates as a default value for the event coordinates.

Any suggestion to achieve this will be appreciated.

Regards.

Hi Sergio,

this is a good question but it's not the original question, so it would be
great if you could start a new thread for this.

Hi there,
We have added a new data value type called "Coordinates". This will allow
you to record coordinates just a normal data value. Is this what you are
looking for?

Jason

Hello all,

Just to be sure and related to this topic, is there any way to capture *event
coordinates* in a default way? I mean, is it possible to assign
coordinates from an org unit to the events which are being captured in this
org unit in an automatic way? For the moment, we have to introduce them
manually with each event we register on one of our programs in order to
make these events visible on GIS app.

I think this is not offtopic, but tell me if it is.

Hi,

Easiest method if you are talking about POINT co-ordinates (e.g. health
facilities):

1. Create a comma-delimited list with facility name (exactly as in the
DHIS), Latitude and Longitude. Coordinates must be ISO standard using datum
WGS-84 (the same datum used by all Global Navigation Systems like GPS, and
used by all modern maps).

2. For point co-ordinates, DHIS supports six decimals (equivalent to
around 10cm precision) - that is the standard number of decimal for point
data in most systems.

3. Whether you create the comma-delimited file in Excel, a text editor
etc does not matter - use what's convenient for you. Make sure the facility
name column is called "NAME"

4. There is no need to generalise point coordinates the same way you
might do it for high-precision line or polygon (area) features, so when you
are ready with the file either convert it to GML format using the
(cumbersome) method described in the DHIS2 manual, OR import it into a GIS
package like QGIS.

5. After creating the GML file, import it. Any mis-spelled name will
show up during the import as having failed.

Hi Jason,

What I am asking for is a little bit different (I don’t know if this is possible), I’ll try to explain myself:

Let’s say we are in Sierra Leone at the Ngelehun CHC. We are capturing data in the “Inpatient morbidity and mortality program”.

Currently, every new event registration requires us to introduce the coordinates of Ngelehun CHC manually, so my question is: Is there any way to automatize this? (The event coordinates we have to introduce every time for each event are the same as Ngelehun CHC coordinates)

I hope my question is more clear now.

Hi Sergio,

this is a good question but it’s not the original question, so it would be great if you could start a new thread for this.

best regards,

Lars

Dear Sergio

If this is for the purpose of analysing events data and all events data are collected and should have registering facility coordinates then I dont think you need to capture coordinates for each event. because even if you collect individual events coordinates which are the same as facility, you will have them all appear at facility in GIS.

I think you would rather use program indicator and build aggregate report indicators that you can use in GIS to display how many events are at each facility.

Hi Jason,

Using GIS app you need to have coordinates on each event most of the time in order to use Thematic Layer and/or Event Layer on maps, and I understand what you say about “the event may be registered at the facility, but actually took place some place different, such as in the community” case scenario, but in the case we consider all the events take place at the facility where the events get registered, It would be helpful for the clerks who introduce the events data into the system to not have to introduce the same coordinates over and over for each patient they register. That’s why I’m asking if there is any way (maybe using custom forms??) to make the facility coordinates as a default value for the event coordinates.

Any suggestion to achieve this will be appreciated.

Hi Sergio,

I think this is configurable.

If you do not want to capture the coordinates of each event, you do not need to.

So for events which always have the same coordinates as the facility, it would seem that you would not need this. In certain use cases (others can describe more I think), the event may be registered at the facility, but actually took place some place different, such as in the community.

Jason

We hadn’t considered the program indicator option. We will give it a try. Anyway, we finally won’t use individual coordinates for sure (we realized we don’t need them).
