Lineage:
Process Step:
Process Description: Lineage statement: This data has been prepared by merging sheet-wise individual layers available from Survey Department, Nepal. The original dataset was prepared by digitizing topographic map sheets generated from the aerial photographs acquired at different periods (1992/1996). The original digital data was released on 2001. The topographic maps used to create this dataset are of 1:25,000 scale at Terai and Mid-Hills, and 1:50,000 scale at Upper Mountains and Himalayan range.
