GIS project for Nepalese ancient temple

A pilot project funded by the Embassy of Finland that has produced a GIS of the Changu Narayan Temple Area will be handed over to the government on April 27.

A press statement from the Embassy of Finland said that the pilot project, Nepal Antiquities Information System (NAIS) conducted by FM-International, was for six months and involved students of Khwopa Engineering College, Bhaktapur in data collection.

The collected information has defined the borders of the archaeological site, which is one of the seven world heritage sites that have been placed on the list of World Heritage in Danger. The system also provides information about the land ownership structure of the surrounding areas and the condition of the monuments.
