Please have a look at the attached brochure. The original is either in our Canva or Google Docs account (my guess would be the former). We need to prepare a similar brochure for our upcoming course. Here is a rough content outline/overview to assist with this. Feel free to adjust and improve as you see fit.

Name of the course:
Procesamiento de datos

Dates: 9 Nov - 10 Dic, los lunes y jueves
4.30PM - 5.30PM SAST (pls add a new page to this brochure with the class times and dates, listing all dates and the time slots in various regions... use this site for conversion and note wintertime has started in some places).


Estamos haciendo un curso para entrenar personas a hacer el "trabajo de campo" de una investigación de metabolismo urbano. En este curso tomamos documentos Excel, PDF, shapefiles, CSV y otras, y aprendemos como convertir los distintos archivos a un formato universal, lo cual permite ingreso de los datos al base de datos de "Metabolism of Cities", y la creación de gráficos, mapas interactivos, data visualizaciones, y más.

Este curso es una continuación del curso corto "Recopilación y manejo de datos". Los estudiantes que hicieron este primer curso pueden seguir trabajando en la ciudad seleccionada anteriormente. También es posible para nuevos estudiantes entrar al curso, pero los cupos están más limitadas y va a ser necesario escoger una ciudad existente de nuestro portal de datos.


Módulo 1: Introducción
Módulo 2: Shapefiles
Módulo 3: Datos georeferenciadas
Módulo 4: Flujos: introducción
Módulo 5: Convertir datos
Módulo 6: Scripts, software y herramientas
Módulo 7: Stock
Módulo 8: Datos biofísicas

Discussion and updates

New task was created

Here's the attachment which didn't upload before.

Okay so that's not working. Found the link in Canva, here's the file.

Thanks for the link! I have created a brochure. You can see it here it starts on page 4

Great MG, thanks! Looks very good. Some small details:

  • The grey box on p4 is pretty large, let's make it shorter by just stating: Metabolismo urbano: Procesamiento de datos (remove "y manejo de datos" from that box)

  • Remove Cape Town from the timezone list, not too many students expected from here

  • Let's put the time zones in order from earliest to latest so there is some logic to it

Thanks for the feedback! The changes have been implemented.

Great MG, all set!
