About this Repository
The file "Dam levels 2012 to 2019.csv" was downloaded from the City of Cape Town Open Data Portal at https://web1.capetown.gov.za/web1/OpenDataPortal/DatasetDetail?DatasetName=Dam%20levels on 1 June 2019.
This file has no README or metadata associated with it in the City of Cape Town Open Data Portal.
The raw CSV was converted to a 'tidy data' format using Python 3.6 in Jupyter Notebook where the steps are described in details along with the commands.
The Python script outputs two files:
- a file containing aggregated mean dam level as percentage for each month - all dams from January 2012 - May 2019
- a file containing aggregated mean dam level as volume (capacity) in millions of litres (ML) for each month - all dams from January 2012 - May 2019
The data was uploaded to Metabolism of Cities on 9 June 2019
