Different representations of thematic layers

Hi,

as far as I can understand, all thematic layers in the GIS app will represent data by colouring the area of the selected organizational level. Is it possible to select other ways of representation, like a circle of various size (similar to the facility layer representation)? A use case would be:
- Layer 1 showing data completeness by district
- Layer 2 with cases of cholera by district

It becomes difficult to see both well at the same time, even with clever use of transparency of the layers. It would be helpful to have for instance the data completeness as a background colour, and the cases of cholera as circles of varying size and/or colour. In general, looking at size of a circle may be more powerful when looking at the presence and epicentres of epidemic outbreaks, but in the West African regional db there is no facility layer. All data is collected for the respective countries' third level (National-level 2-level 3)

Regards,
Johan

Hi Johan,

What you want is actually there and once you have facility/site Coordinates for a facility you will be able to achieve this both by colour and circle size of the data being mapped.

Under Orgunit Level, select the facility/site group

See below

Hi Prosper,

yes, this is what is needed, but also without representing a facility/point. I would like polygons to also be represented this way, both since some databases will not have facility coordinates, but more importantly since it is sometimes a better way to represent data than a coloured layer, even for districts, regions etc.
