GIS modelling for predicting land use and forest cover change

Morphometric analysis of Morar River Basin, India

Water Poverty in Bagmati River Basin, Nepal

Project Description


HEMS, Nepal



The integration of remote sensing and GIS technologies was used for describing, analysing and predicting the process of land use change in Bagmati river basin in Nepal. Mapping of soil profile was used to pinpoint gap in knowledge to utilize new and existing information so that applicable decision support systems could be devised to tailor the specific needs.

The Normalized Difference Vegetation Index (NDVI) was used in this research to study changes in land use and forest cover and predict future for the year 2018, 2023 and 2028. NDVI was used to resolve the density of green on a patch of land.
