Using population, elevation, landcover and climate layers in DHIS2 Maps

DHIS2 has a powerful integration with Google Earth Engine allowing you to access detailed datasets for population (WorldPop), building footprints, elevation, land use and climate. These datasets can be freely used by governments and non-profit organisations.

System administrators can now send an email to saying you need access to Google Earth Engine for your DHIS2 instance(s). Please specify the name of your organization. We will generate a key file allowing all your DHIS2 users to access the Earth Engine map layers.

The key file should be placed in the same folder as the “dhis.conf” file, and it can be used for multiple DHIS2 instances that you administer within a country.


is the key available for those running/ for testing private instances of DHIS2?

Yes, as long as it is for non-commercial use.
