Digital dataset of Forest Cover of Central Karakoram National Park (CKNP) area, Pakistan. This dataset is extracted from land cover dataset of 2010.
Compiled MODIS Active fire dataset of HKH region derived from FIRMS (Fire Information for Resource Management System). The data shows the locations of fire incidents within HKH region on various dates in the period between 2000 to 2010 along with the confidence level information of such incidents.
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 2000 and replicable methodology. The study estimated that 41.64% of Nepal is covered by forests and 27.77% by agriculture. Physiographic regions wise forest fragmentation analysis revealed specific conservation requirements for productive hill and mid mountain regions. Comparative analysis with Landsat TM based global land cover product showed difference of the order of 30-60% among different land cover classes stressing the need for significant improvements for national level adoption. The online web based land cover validation tool is developed for continual improvement of land cover product. The potential use of the data set for national and regional level sustainable land use planning strategies and meeting several global commitments also highlighted.
Vulnerability layer gives information about the climate change vulnerability of forest ecosystems in Chitwan Annapurna Landscape.
Adaptive capacity layer gives information about the climate change adaptive capacity of forest ecosystems in Chitwan Annapurna Landscape
At the watershed level, crown projection area (CPA) vs. basal area (BA) model was developed and validated. At the watershed level, for CPA delineation, region growing technique was adopted. GeoEye-1 images captured on 15 December, 2012 was used.
NTFP layer gives information about the dependence of local communities for NTFP on forest ecosystems in Chitwan Annapurna Landscape.
Exposure layer gives information about the climate change exposure of forest ecosystems in Chitwan Annapurna Landscape.
