coordinates not found

​Hi all,

Trying to set up GIS in my DHIS2 instance. The GML import is successful, but then when I try to add the layer in GIS, it says “valid coordinates not found”. Any ideas of what to check?

Thanks,

Natalie

Hi Natalie

To which organization units have you imported coordinates? and which ones are you trying to access in GIS module?

In other words, describe what you have done. May be you are missing something. Or give example.

Hi Natalia,

in addition to Patrick’s comments, it is useful to have a look in the organisationunit table in your database and see what actually got imported, e.g. with this SQL:

select uid,name,coordinates from organisationunit;

The points should look something like this:

[-12.66,9.38]

best,

Lars

Thank you all. Looks like the import didn’t actually work (ignored). I’ve attached two files I tried, one simply adding a line ogr:NAMEname</ogr:NAME> and one replacing it. These are simply gml files converted from gadm.com.

Thanks for any help!​

Hi Natalie

I have looked at the supplied files and noticed that there are coordinates in the list which are not separated with ‘,’. This applies for both files. I would try to go through the files and verify that all coordinates are properly separated and try to import the files another time. If this does not work, please reply - if you can get the logs from the server that would help.

Regards
