These maps were created from GIS layers produced by Kabindra Joshi, Cartography and Survey Engineering Consultant, Kathmandu, Nepal. Ken Bauer and Travis Durfee at the Digital Himalaya project used ArcMap to parse out Nepal's 75 districts. For each district, separate layers (Rivers, Settlements, Elevation, and Roads) were geoprocessed using standard GIS procedures (clipping). A separate layer was then created for every combination of these layers.
See instructions below:
By using the table above, you can choose one district with any combination:
Rivers + Roads
Rivers + Settlements
River + Elevation
Road + Settlements
Road + Elevation
Settlement + Elevation
Rivers + Roads + Settlement
Rivers + Roads + Elevation
Rivers + Settlements + Elevation
Roads + Settlements + Elevation
The Digital Himalaya's Nepal Maps Collection is designed for downloading and printing, on-screen viewing, and digital presentations. By using the table above, you will be able to create a gif or pdf image for the map you have chosen.
Kabindra Joshi provided the GIS
data which Digital Himalaya geoprocessed to make maps of each district.
