A number of datasets on vulnerability (i.e. albedo change, GPP change, LAI change, LST change, NPP change) and dependence (i.e. deforestation, fuelwood, NTFP, grazing) have been developed for Chitwan Annapurna Landscape (CHAL). Using the vulnerability and dependence parameter layers, final vulnerability and dependence layers have been created and classified each into three classes: High, Medium and Low.
The application allows interactive visualization of various vulnerability and dependence layers. Users can look at the relation between any two selected layers by swiping one layer over another.
One can view the information on vulnerability and dependence for any given VDC along with adaptation measures based on combination of vulnerability and dependence values. Alternatively, one can digitize a polygon or an area of interest (AOI) on map and get the similar information for that AOI.
