Automatically populate the organizational unit hierarchy based on WFS web-service

Registered by jason.p.pickering on 2009-09-11

Implement the ability for DHIS to connect to a Web Feature Service (WFS) web service which will automatically populate the organization hierarchy for a particular organizational unit level. Such functionality was developed by a student group at University of Oslo, which connected to a web service provided by the World Health Organization. Geoserver (or other WFS servers) are capable of returning a geographic layer as well-formed XML (Geography Markup language). DHIS should be able to connect to such as web-service, parse the XML and automatically populate the organization hierarchy for a specific country or region.
