Distance Calculation with GIS module

Hi everyone,

I am currently using GIS module to map the orgunits of our DHIS instance in the national map. Everything went fine but i was wondering if there was a possibility calculating distance between two orgunit elements or more. I don’t know if this feature has been implemented. We are using 2.31.3 version.

Thank you,

Abdou

Hi Abdou,

You can create Distance and Area Measurements using the Maps App. Here is the documentation: https://docs.dhis2.org/master/en/dhis2_end_user_manual/using-the-maps-app.html#measure-distances-and-areas-in-a-map

I hope one day we can calculate Distances and Bearing between two points and store it as data element :slight_smile: @Scott, Do you think that can make it on the roadmap someday?

Thank you very much Chase for this prompt response.
Yes i hope also. That’s amazing, the more this software is used the more needs come up by the time!

Thanks
