Webinar on Advanced Population Mapping in DHIS2 - March 23

HISP UiO and Gavi invite you to join us for the next webinar in our DHIS2 for Immunization series: Advanced Population Mapping in DHIS2.

The latest release of DHIS2 introduces many new, advanced tools for mapping populations, building structures, and adding facility catchments areas. The use of catchment areas for planning outreach campaigns, mass vaccinations, and many other health programs. UiO and Crosscut will present these innovations and show you how you can begin to use them today.

This webinar took place on Wednesday, 23 March 2022. You can watch a recording of it on the DHIS2 YouTube channel and download the presentations from the DHIS2 team and Crosscut

Note: The originally version of this webinar included a sections on use of service-based denominators. It has since been brought to our attention that WHO does not encourage this approach, and that section of the webinar has been removed from the slides as well as the YouTube video.

This webinar will also be hosted in French on 29 March at 14:00 UTC. Registration for the French webinar is available here.

For the Offline Mobile Dashboards, when I use the map, can I calculate distances between GPS coordinates (does DHIS2 support distance calculation e.g. via the distance XPath function on Java/J2ME and/or Android phones)?

How often do the building footprint and high res population datasets get updated in Google Earth Engine?

For the record, here is @scott’s answer to this question from the webinar chat:
Link to google’s building/structures layers. It is being continuously updated. DHIS2 pulls the most updated data every time you make a map.
