Converting MUTM Everest Coordinate 1830 to WGS 84 using ArcGIS: Projection and Transformation

The Map Projection System used in Nepal is the MUTM (Modified Universal Transverse Mercator). Read more about Map Projection System in Nepal here.

In this exercise, I will be using ArcGIS. Other methods will be posted in the future.

  1. Load the data in MUTM. If you don’t have data yet, you can download from

Make a simple landcover classification map using Regression Tree

The full code for classification after obtaining sample points is here. The full code for classification with sample points generated on the fly is here.

Note: This is a very simple method for generating Landcover maps meant for showing the basic workflow for generating Landcover maps. You can use more sophisticated algorithms like CONTINUE READING

Classifying the dynamics of the forest using the time-series

In this post, we will use the datasets from UMD (Tree Canopy Cover [TCC] and LOSS layers) to calculate and classify the dynamics of the forest. The TCC is available from 1988 and LOSS layers are available from 1989. Here we will be calculating different forest dynamics. Use the final assemblage using this link or … CONTINUE READING

Generation of High-Resolution DSM Using UAV Images

Generating High-Resolution DSM often demands highly accurate data. Among the range of terrestrial and aerial methods available to produce such a dataset, this project tests the utility of images acquired by a fixed-wing, low-cost Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV). The data processing of UAV images has been carried out using the algorithms ranging from classical photogrammetry … CONTINUE READING

Assessment of time since forest disturbance

In the assessment of time since forest disturbance, we define disturbance as the drop of TCC from =10% to 0%. Use following code or the link here.

Happy Earth Science 🙂… CONTINUE READING
