Importing GML files

Friends - i have a local DHIS2 setup on my laptop and i am trying to import GML files.

There were no shape files earlier on my system. I imported Districts of Uganda using the user guide on the dhis2 site - successfully. When i go to Services -> GIS and Select the Boundary Layer; when i select District from the drop down of level and click on Uganda under the Parent organisation unit and click Update, the map doesn’t appear.

To my surprise when i change the Level to Region and click update, i get the map showing districts. Its giving me a thought that i probably need to import GML files according to the level’s; is that correct?
The level’s as set in my system are:-

  1. Uganda
  2. Region
  3. District
  4. County
  5. Sub-County

Does that mean that i need to import the GML files according to the set levels? Or is something wrong with my earlier imported GML file?

Martin,

We normally dont bother to put in the coordinates for the whole country, because the map will then just show one polygon with a color, which is not so interesting. Thats why the top level is not showing a boundary. Google maps will have the national boundary anyway in the background map. But of course it is possible to add it.

Hi Martin,

you don’t need to pay attention to levels when you import coordinates, the names just have to match. My guess is that even though you imported a district shapefile (GML) the names probably did not match. Make sure that the names in your ogr:Name tags in the GML file are matching exactly the orgunit names in the database.

You get districts when selecting regions. Are you sure you chose the correct name tags when you renamed to ogr:Name ? District shapefiles often have the region name as well.

Knut, he selected the district level.

Guess my reply was too fast :wink:

But the issue may also be with the naming of OU levels?
