OpenMRS is not just software; OpenMRS is a community of developers and implementers around the world trying to improve health in resource-constrained environments.  The software is being used in countries all over the world (see the OpenMRS Atlas).  In fact, we're not sure how many places OpenMRS is being used.  Thus far, we have been keeping a list of activate implementations manually through word of mouth.  We would like to automate (or at least semi-automate) the OpenMRS Atlas information, but do not want to force implementations to join the atlas or even allow it to happen accidentally; rather, we would like to create a way for implementations to opt-in to the joining the OpenMRS Atlas in a manner that is fun and useful to them.


Use the Google Map API to display a custom bubble containing the information as it will be displayed on the OpenMRS Atlas.

Mid-Term Goals

  • An atlas module that collects implementation name & location

Extra Credit

  • Allow the administrator to see exactly what will be sent to OpenMRS servers
  • Optionally collect an image that can be included in their "bubble" on the atlas
  • Let the user control the frequency of updates
