geolocation

(GEOgraphic LOCATION) The physical location of an object in the world, which may be described by degrees of longitude and latitude or by a more identifiable place such as city or residence. Being able to identify the location of a user via the geolocation methods in a smartphone (GPS, cellular, etc.) has enabled entirely new applications and businesses. For example, users can get spoken directions to a destination, locate friends in the vicinity or request the closest cab (see transportation network company).

We obtained district-level shapefiles from the Ministry of Health, and geolocated individual HCs within districts using sanitary maps for 2007 and 2010 (http://cns.bf/spip.php?article42), and spatial databases provided by the Direction des Statistiques Sectorielles that were supplemented by additional information from NominatimOpenStreetMaps (https://nominatim.openstreetmap.org), GeoNames (http://www.geonames.org), and Google Maps (https://www.google.com/maps) when needed (e.g., to geolocate new HCs that began reporting after 2010 or were missing in the database).
