Our team thereby has finished performing systematic sweeps of key public infrastructure around Kathmandu. If you would like the data, for further processing, classification or interpretation, please contact us. It is freely available. Click here for our copyright policy.

Ajaya Budathoki, Ayush Pokharel and Victor Shnayder provided additional support.
