This cycle of Redatam+SP consists of three courses:
- The first course is focused on the creation of data bases in Redatam format,
- he second one is focused on the design and development of applications for distribution in CD and Web page form,
- And the third course is centered on the use and processing of census data and other information sources for the generation of socio-demographic indicators.
During the 15th to the 26th of October 2007, CELADE will be offering Course II: Development and applications for diffusion with Redatam+SP, creation of applications using Redatam+SP xPlan and using Redatam+SP WebServer. This course was conceived as a tool for developing computational solutions oriented to the dissemination of existing data in Redatam format through an interactive CD or on-line processing on the Internet or Intranet.
This course has been planned in two blocks of five days each: the first week will be an introduction to the Redatam+SP Process module and to the development of Redatam+SP xPlan applications. The program will include the basic functions of the statistical processing module and the revision of the various files associated to an xPlan application (metadata, inl file, front page, etc.). The second week will be focused on a more in-depth review of the xPlan application, the review of complex nodes, maps and the setting up of the application in the Web environment. The development of these xPlan applications will include, at the end of the course, the creation of a distribution CD and setting up the same application on a Web site.
