Healthsites.io :: API And First Steps To Use The Data

Recommended Posts

hello and good day, 

 

first of all - i hope that this question is placed in the correct forum. Dear admin - if not please set me straight and help me to put the question in the right forum. Many thanks for all you did!! Keep up the great project here at neowin it rocks!!! 

i am pretty new to openStreetmap and  have only some insights into openStreetmap: my wiki-page: https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/User:Tagtheworld

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
