SERVIR in Afghanistan

In Afghanistan, SERVIR provides technical assistance to the Government of the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan (GIRoA) by improving the use of technology in water resources, agriculture water use, and irrigation management and decision making. Additionally, the project seeks to:

  • Build capacity on Earth observation and geospatial information management, and analysis for applications in the field of water resources management
  • Enhance access to data through development of integrated portals for sharing data on hydro-met, irrigation and water resources
  • Develop decision support tools for analysis, visualization and dissemination of information to targeted stakeholders

Datasets

Glaciers in Sagarmatha National Park (SNP) Nepal

Digital polygon dataset of Glaciers in Sagarmatha National Park, SNP area. This dataset is extracted from inventory of glaciers and glacial lakes prepared by ICIMOD, 2002.

MODIS Active Fire Data of Hindu Kush Himalayan (HKH) Region

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.

Road Network of Wangchu, Bhutan

Digital line dataset of Road network of Wangchu, Bhutan. This dataset is created using topographic sheet maps at scale of 50000 and prepared by ICIMOD.

Relief of Sagarmatha National Park (SNP) Nepal

Digital polygon dataset of Relief of Sagarmatha National Park, SNP. This dataset is derived from the digital elevation model (DEM) created by interpolating contour lines and spot heights from Topographical sheet data at scale 50000 of 1996 from Survey Department, Nepal.

Landuse of Kathmandu Metropolitian City

Landuse(polygon) dataset of Kathmandu Metropolitian City for the Geo-visualization on emergency response in case of earthquake disaster.

Glaciers of Bhutan 2010

Digital polygon data of Glaciers of Bhutan in 2010. This dataset is created using Landsat TM and 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.

Glaciers of Bhutan 2000

Digital polygon data of Glaciers of Bhutan in 2000. This dataset is created using Landsat TM and ETM+, imageries of 2000. 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.

Glaciers of Bhutan 1990

Digital polygon data of Glaciers of Bhutan in 1990. This dataset is created using Landsat MSS, imageries of 1990. 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.

Glaciers of Bhutan 1980

Digital polygon data of Glaciers of Bhutan in 1980. This dataset is created using Landsat MSS imageries of 1980. 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.

Land Cover of Bhutan 1990

Land cover data of Bhutan for 1990. This dataset is created using the LandSat 30 meter spatial resolution satellite image of 1990.
