healthsites.io :: API and first steps to use the data
 
dear community


i am pretty new to linux - and have some insights into openStreetmap.


some first steps into the technique of OpenStreetMap i have made: working with the languages like PHP / Perl and of course Python i am working on the API-endpoint with requests ...
osmconvert and osmfilter
Overpass-API and Overpass-Turbo-API
working on the planet file
- at the API-Endpoint with PHP, Perl, Python
- PostGIS and of course osmosis - the OpenStreetMap - swiss army tool.


now i have seen a interesting dataset like healthsites.io_ this is pretty cool: this is just outstanding and great!

i work for an organization that contributes to volunteering opportunities especially in the field of education and medicine (hospital, clinic etc. etx). peace and development through volunteerism worldwide. Volunteerism - in general - is a powerful means of engaging people in tackling development challenges, and it can transform the the engagement of a single volunteer. Volunteerism benefits both society at large and - besides that- the individual volunteer by strengthening trust, solidarity and reciprocity among citizens, and by purposefully creating opportunities for participation. At the moment we re thinking about doing some first steps with the great dataset of healthsites.

regarding healthsites this is the most important link: https://healthsites.io/api/docs/
Means there is an API to get the data from with a personal API key : note: with this - i should be able to put the data on a website

e.g. to a mapping plugins of wordpress. there some of them working with openStreetmap - see for example: https://de.wordpress.org/plugins/search/map/
they are equipped with a whole lot of top notch and very advanced features so we do not need to manually embedded map.
In addition to single or multiple locations, interactive map plugins provide:
were able to add Custom icons and markers
Animations
Filter and search options
Clusterization
Zooming and panning
pinning the map to a block
using the data that comes shipped with the map.

question: can we run and apply the data from the Open data collaboration https://healthsites.io in wordpress
look forward to hear from you

above all: keep up the great project - it rocks.
regards

Do the research:
  • look what sort of permissions healthsites gives you for using their data (afaiu this should be ok)
  • look if wordpress has anyhting against it (why should it?)

hello dear ondoho,

first of all: many many thanks for the reply and for your encouraging to go on: this is very helpful.

according the man page we have: https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/...apping_Project

Data Extracts

Healthsites.io Data extracts per country are available on Healthsites.io, which can be found by going to the map page and browsing the country list on the left panel. Clicking on the name of any country listed will show a dashboard for that country which includes a link for downloading the associated data as a shapefile.

Humanitarian Data Exchange Health facility data can be downloaded from the Humanitarian Data Exchange (HDX) platform. Healthsites is registered as the Global Healthsites Mapping Project and hosts country datasets for health facilities, which can be downloaded as a GeoJSON, CSV and/or Shapefile.

Export Tool: The Export Tool is another platform where health facility data can be easily downloaded. Developed by the Humanitarian OpenStreetMap Team, the Export Tool is an open service that creates customised extracts of up-to-date OpenStreetMap data in various file formats, including GeoPackage (.gpkg), Garmin (.img), Google Earth (.kml), OSM (.pbf), MAPS.ME (.mwm), OsmAnd (.obf) and MBTiles (.mbtiles).


so according the main question is: are we able to integrate with the healthsites API - eg to a osm-plugin in wordpress?

Does it integrate with the Open Layers engine?
will i be able to custom markers, allow for filter and for zooming and so on?
do i need to add a own data-set via an import?



i guess that i can do some export of the data: the most interesting data for me is to find the adress-data of the hospital in some part of the world...

- france
- argentina
- brasil
- chile
- spain
etc. etx.

i need to fetch those kind of data from the healthsite.io-database!


btw: if i can do this with or without wordpress - either way would be okay...

Sorry, no...you've been asking about these things for YEARS at this point, under your other user ID, sayhello_to_the_world:
https://www.linuxquestions.org/quest...ta-4175502797/
https://www.linuxquestions.org/quest...db-4175553319/
https://www.linuxquestions.org/quest...al-4175509667/
https://www.linuxquestions.org/quest...ql-4175508017/
https://www.linuxquestions.org/quest...ql-4175679850/

You are not new to Linux, openstreetmap, programming, or WordPress. You have asked about those things for years now, not only here but on other sites as well. You also typically don't do any related research but expect us to do it for you, and you show none of your own efforts. You continually say you will 'post all of your findings', yet you HAVE NEVER DONE SO.

It is very obvious that you are the same person; if you put as much effort into doing your own research and learning as you do in asking for handouts, you'd be an expert.
