Our geospatial solutions team are up-to-date with global developments in Earth observation and geospatial technology and leverage their use to provide solutions to the complex problems in the HKH.
Earth observation has advance dramatically and together with geospatial methods to analyse remotely sensed data, we leverage opportunities to gain insights into regional scenarios, to integrate local scale processes with coarser scales, to characterise ecosystem conditions and changes, and to analyse effects of different management and development processes on the functioning of ecosystems.
Recent advances in Earth observation, near real-time data, in-situ measurements, and advancement of information and communication technologies have transformed the way information is generated and used to benefit society. We aim to make optimal use of these technological developments, closely linking observation and science programmes with decision support structures that translate knowledge into actionable information.
The application provides easy access to the harmonised land cover database developed for Nepal over different time slices (1990, 2000 and 2010) and provides.. user friendly tools for generating statistics to understand the change processes and to support the informed decisions..
