How you are dividing tasks within the group

The project will be divided into three major functionality parts that each group member will be in charge of handeling.

Haris   -  Task 1: Create the page with functionality for searching and moving through the organisation units. Code for generating a list of all the organisation units.

Daniel -  Task 2: Make the functions for getting the specific data for each organisation unit, edit the data and save functionality.

Rathis -  Task 3: Generate a map with markers for the specific organisation unit.


Showing a map with org units.

Ability to search for a org unit and then display it on the map.

A scrollable list with all org units. Be able to click a name and have it show on the map.

Be able to edit the org unit.

Screenshots and screen flows

Example 1:

Enlarged Map.PNG

A search engine to find an org unit.

Scrollable list for each org unit that is clickable and will show it on the map.

Standard view of the site: This is a aproximate of how the main page should look and feel like.

When clicking an org unit: Since it's a single page site we want a dropdown window of the viewable and editable information when clicking a Organization unit.

When clicking on the map: When clicking the map it should enlarge so to be easier to view.

Documented learning during project

Previous to this assignment the group had no experience with Angular, DHIS or Java Script so it was a big challenge going into this project.

Our knowledge of git was also limited and we struggled in the start to set up access for all group members. This resultet in our commits beeing quite large when we first got it working and most of the functionality almost complete.

Through out the project we have gained some basic skill on working with Angular and what it can be used for. It can generate very good web pages without the developer having much design knowledge and is very good for creating a single page application. There are many possibileties with Angular, but we only managed to get a basic understanding and use the more simpler functions.

More on our individual learning outcome will be covered in the essay.

Suggested improvements to APIs etc

The group was not used to using APIs in this way and used some time to get used to it. We don't fully understand all of it so we don't have any suggestions at this point.
