Hi everyone, is historical healthsites data for Ghana available for a research project? If so, how long does it date back? Thanks!
Mark Herringer
@markherringer
Martin the data we have for Ghana comes from OSM mostly
martinmartin17
@martinmartin17
Thanks Mark, so with this data I can't see for example how many hospitals there were in 2010 in a given location?
Mark Herringer
@markherringer
No we don't offer that function yet..
martinmartin17
@martinmartin17

Hello

@raubreywhite
Hi, just some issues that you might find in Israel and Palestine:
  • For large and old cities/places, the names in Hebrew, Arabic, and English are different (and pronounced differently). So for example: Jaffa (English), Yafo (Hebrew), Yaffa (Arabic). Jerusalem (English), Yerushaliyem (Hebrew), Al Quds (Arabic).
  • For smaller cities/villages, then there is generally just 1 name (either Hebrew or Arabic). But there is no standard way to transliterate Hebrew/Arabic to English (or at least no standard way that I have seen in practice). For example when (Arabic) "Al Jeeb" is transliterated to English it can be written as "Al Jeb", "Al Jib", "El Jib", "Jib", "Jeeb", "El Jeeb", depending on which map/sign you are looking at.
  • For street names in Israel, their English transliterations can be different on different signs/parts of the street. For example, at the start of the street it could be "Malekh George" (king george - phonetic Hebrew) and later on it could be "King George" (translated to English), and later it could be "Malekh HaGeorge" (the king george - phonetic Hebrew).
  • If you have a "default" name, then you are probably going to make some people very angry, as you will be making a political statement regarding that place. If your "default" name for Jerusalem is "Al Quds" some people will be very angry, and if your "default" name for Jerusalem is "Yerushaliyem" then some people will be very angry.

Hello, Thanks for this great initiative!
One comment:
It seems that the creation of the download shapefile links is not working for some countries. Among others, for Bosnia Herzegovina and Czech Republic, but also the general link ("Download all healthsite data"). It gets stuck at "generating shapefile" for hours, and I have been trying it for several days.

Hi. Where can I get more info about the user permissions/roles available for healthsites.io?
Mark Herringer
@markherringer
Hi @JohanVanZyl
anyone can read, only registered users (with OpenStreetMap) can write
Johan van Zyl
@JohanVanZyl
Thank you for the feedback @markherringer. Is there a curation workflow where users with different levels of access (permissions) can propose changes/additions and it be accepted by users with appropriate permissions?
Mark Herringer
@markherringer
Edits to openstreetmap are managed by the community.
https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Quality_assurance#Monitoring_tools
With regard to a 'curation workflow' I understand that you are refering to a Ministry of Health for instance.
https://github.com/healthsites/healthsites/wiki/Healthsites-roadmap#integration-with-dhis2
In this situation the Ministry decides that it wants to share it's baseline health facility data to OSM under the ODbL data license. This enables the Ministry to receive updates from OpenStreetMap to its DHIS2 instance or Master Facility List (MFL). We see this as a way that the Ministry can work with citizens and stakeholders in the Health cluster to maintain their MFL.

Thanks Mark, much appreciated.

Hi, was interested to pull and work with the entire dataset but the download always dies at about 1GB, is this a known issue? Maybe some sort of out of memory exception on the server when buffering?
Janusz Slota
@nixilla
@stevokk are you trying to pull the entire planet file with docker osm?
Janusz Slota
@nixilla
ok, that's a shape file - let me have a look
Steven
@stevokk
I clicked the download link and the indexing logic was broken (seems the current index is +2 of the total) so the download doesn't start, but in the JS I saw it can return the entire World. Next plan was to loop all countries and merge the files manually
If you have a better method to get the data I can do that, eventually I would want to progressively keep this data up to date and don't want to overload your server
But.. first just want to see the data
Janusz Slota
@nixilla
the size of world.zip is 2GB
let me check the download limits
Steven
@stevokk
Yep, at 1GB the connection cuts out
Janusz Slota
@nixilla
I can confirm, I've created ticket for this to fix: healthsites/healthsites#1323
I've downloaded the file via SFTP and I'm going to send you alternative (Dropbox) link in few mins
Steven
@stevokk
Very much appreciated!
Side question - Do you have a donation page? No links on the homepage
mcauz
@mcauz
Hello. Unfortunately the links to downloads the dataset is always broken. The Steven's link is too bigger to download it and the Janusz's curl script fails to the half of the download. Is there any other ways to download the data ?
Janusz Slota
@nixilla
@mcauz what do you need? World.zip?
mcauz
@mcauz
@nixilla Is this the dataset with all the healthsite centers? If yes, I'd like it, thanks.
