Pull Geocodes for Facilities Using API

(Dr. Ifeanyi Okoye) #1

Dear All,
Is there a way to pull facility geo coordinates using the API or any other method in DHIS2?

Would appreciate your help.

Thank you.

Hi Dr. Okoye,

You can use the below api to pull facility geo coordinates:


In React JS you can fetch:
const fetchOptions = {
headers: {
Accept: ‘application/json’,
Authorization: Basic ${btoa('admin:district')}
return new Promise( (resolve, reject) => {
fetch(baseUrl+“api/organisationUnits.json?fields=id,code,name,latitude,longitude,coordinates”, fetchOptions)
.then(r => resolve(r.json()))
.catch(err => reject(err));

Hi Dr Okoye,

It might also be helpful to add ‘featureType’, which helps you distinguish points from polygons/areas. See a similar discussion here.

Cheers, Sam.

Thank you @SamuelJohnson. Is there a way to add the org unit level as well?

Sure, just add ‘,level’ to the list of fields. To see a full list of all fields available, you can do ?fields=* - this will return every available field (but I’d remove ‘&paging=false’ before you do that, as otherwise it will return a lot of data!).
