Netherlands Kottenpark 2008

Netherlands Kottenpark 2008 was provided by and converted to xml by Gerhard Post. Kottenpark is an average size school in Enschede. This dataset differs from Kottenpark2003 and Kottenpark2005 in that it has no explicit students. The students are sectioned over the courses in a sectioning phase, which is taken as start point here. The dataset was converted from an original format that was used to generate the Kottenpark's schedule for 2008/2009.
