Dear all,

First of all: Hello. Second, please excuse me for asking a rather basic question:

I read that DHS offers georeferenced data (apparently not for SPA but for their surveys). However, I do not see a way to download or request these data. The only data I can download - even without applying for it - is aggregated on provincial level. This is far too highly aggregated. I need to be able to go down to 0.5 times 0.5 decimal degree cells.

I received access to Standard DHS 2015 for Zimbabwe and can download everything except for HIV and Geographic Datasets. There is a file under "Geographic Dataset" but there is no box to check to download it.

So long story short: How do I request access for geocoded data?

Thank you very much for you help!
