OpenGeoSMS is a simple format for encoding Latitude & Longitude into a text message (SMS/Email/Twitter).

It sends as a GoogleMaps URL (our implementation also supports OpenStreetMap).

  • The LatLon can be manually copied to a GPS, if the recipient is on a non-SmartPhone or has no Internet access from that location.
  • If they have a SmartPhone then they can click on the URL to see the location being discussed on a map
  • If they have the Android application then they can get additional functionality to support Incident Reporting, Task Dispatch & peer to peer Team Communications ("I am here", "Where are you?", "Where shall we meet?")

Android source developed by ITRI Taiwan is available on Github:


Our support is in modules/s3/

  • msg.prepare_opengeosms(self, location_id, code="S", map="google", text="")
    • S = Sahana
    • ST = Sahana Task Dispatch
    • SI = Sahana Incident Report
