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 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.

Digital polygon data of Glaciers of Nepal in 1980, 1990, 2000 and 2010. This dataset is created using Landsat MSS,TM and ETM+ imageries of four respective decades. The glacier outlines were 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. Moreover, the glacier outlines for 2000, 1990 and 1980 were derived manually modifying the glacier outlines of 2010 by overlaying separately the images of respective decades.
