Extra (if time)

  • Set patients location from a click on the map in patient dashboard page (Jorun)


  • Plug-in functionality into existing architecture
  • Map
- Leaflet uses a permissive BSD open-source licence so can be incorporated into any site without legal worries.
- http://switch2osm.org/using-tiles/getting-started-with-leaflet/
- DHIS also uses the BSD licence 

  • Picture module:
 - Storing pictures by reading the picture's DataURL and POSTing this string to
   the systemSettings API with patientid+'img' as key.
 - JS File API, jQuery, HTML, systemSettings API
 - "No uploading" :)
 - This solution can meet errors with normal/large pictures depending on the
   individual webservers configuration concerning header/buffer sizes for      
   request/response headers. If the GET/POST request exceeds the size limit,  
   the web server will most likely respond with: 413 (Full head)


  • Get the server up and running
  • Find the right .vm files to work in
  • Make tables to add maps and picture in on the two pages we are working on
  • Working maps with hard coded markers
  • Upload photos from disk
  • Add markers in patient dashboard page from patients attributes
  • Scale the uploaded photo to the table size
  • Add markers from patients attributes on patient management page
  • Save uploaded picture
