Land cover of Nepal 2010

ICIMOD
Land cover and its change analysis across the Hindu Kush Himalayan (HKH) region is realized as an urgent need to support diverse issues of environmental conservation. This study presents the first and most complete national land cover database of Nepal prepared using public domain Landsat TM data of 2010 and replicable methodology. The study estimated that 41.9% of Nepal is covered by forests and 27.32% by agriculture. Comparative analysis with Landsat TM based global land...

Land cover of Bhutan 2010

ICIMOD
Land cover data of Bhutan for 2010. This dataset is created using the LandSat 30 meter spatial resolution satellite image of 2010.

Glaciers of Nepal 2010

ICIMOD
Digital polygon data of Glaciers of Nepal in 2010. This dataset is created using Landsat TM, ETM+ imageries of 2010. The glacier outlines was derived semi-automatically using object-based image classification (OBIC ) method separately for clean ice and debris cover and further editing and validation was done carefully by draping over the high resolution images from Google Earth.

The Status of Glacial Lakes in the Hindu Kush Himalaya

ICIMOD
The comprehensive baseline information on the glacial lakes of the Hindu Kush Himalaya was generated semi-automatically using more than 200 Landsat 5 TM and Landsat 7 ETM+ images of 2005 ± 2 years with minimum cloud and snow coverage. The glacial lakes were mapped by using band ratio threshold condition method and some manual intervention. The attribute data were assigned using 90m resolution SRTM DEM.
