Which is the definitive guide to Metadata design in DHIS?

Hello Community,

We’re at a point were we need to design metadata for an agriculture database. The Implementation Guide seems to simply discusses concepts, and the more practical User Manual says, “The actual creation and definition of the data elements themselves are far beyond the scope of this manual to describe.”

I have to ask before digging any deeper, is there any other definitive guide we can follow to come up with the metadata?

Any and all assistance will be appreciated.

Hello Adam,

Can you clarify what you mean by creating metadata ?

The implementation guide and the user documentation are the main documentation to read in order to get started. You can also look at the demo (https://play.dhis2.org/demo) in order to get a better understanding on how DHIS2 can fit your specific case.

Do you plan to use it to collect then analyze regular data on agriculture on a set of areas with predefined organization ?

Good luck.

Kind regards,

Kader
