50.67 square kilometers.
671,846 residents living in
235,387 house holds
Ø Emergency Service providers:
§ Health Centers

Poor Traffic management.
Lack of Traffic awareness in people.
According to Metropolitan Traffic Police Division, on an average 15 accidents occur in
Kathmandu everyday many of them fatal. Last month alone 454 accidents occurred and 12

• Desk Study
• Primary Data
• Secondary Data from concerned authorities
• GPS will be used if secondary data is not available.
• Classification of the details(Black Spots , One Way
Traffic , congested areas etc)
• Selection and Omission of Data
• Making Geodatabase and Different Layers
• Name placement
Need of Study
Cartographic Works and Design
Instruments, Soft wares and Resources Used
§ Instrument: GPS (Garmin)
§ Soft wares:
Topographical Digital map of Survey Department(1:50,000)
Satellite Image ( taken in 1994 Source Unknown)
Google Earth (www.googleearth.com)
Primary (Rescue) features
The features that are
concerned with the rescue
operation is called the rescue
features. These features
include Hospitals , Police
Stations, Fire Brigade and One
way traffic. The rescue
features are highlighted in the
All the other contents which
would make the map more
readable and user-friendly are
the secondary features. The
secondary features include the
local place names, important
buildings name, water bodies
and other prominent features
of the map.
Traffic Police Post
Police Office/ Post
One Way Traffic
Scale: The scale to which a map is
drawn represents the ratio of the
distance between two points on
the map and the distance between
the two corresponding points on
The rescue map is printed in:
Ø MUTM, 84
Ø Everest 1937
Ø Longitude 84 East, Latitude 0
Ø False Coordinate: 500000m
Easting, 0 Northing
Ø Scale factor at central meridian
FACTS AND CAUTIONS FOUND
DURING OUR STUDY
Ø Heavy vehicles are not allowed to enter inside ring road
between 8 am to 8 pm.
Ø One way traffic rules are obligatory for Rescue Vehicles.
Ø CRV or TCRV or both would reach any place of
emergency within 5- 8 minutes within ring road. So best
way to seek for quick rescue is police.
RESCUE OPERATION PROCEDURE
InformationOF NEPAL POLICE the Control
convey to the
room( Accidental detail briefing is
nearest police post( information
then forwarded to the required
taken as much as possible and work
according to the accidental case.)
Control room sends vehicle and the
rescue team and also inform other
rescue 11/8/13 providers
SUMMARY AND CONCLUSION
“Mapping of Rescue Service providers and Routes Within the
Kathmandu Ring- Road” means, Preparing a special map with
the following features, needed for Rescue.
Rescue service providers ( hospitals, Police, firefighters,ambulance,
The project work has been completed within the specific timeframe.
The project has achieved its objective throughout the working time.
The project is found to be one of the most important work because
there is no any such informative map, even the sensitive
organization like fire brigade also works on the basis of guess
and driver’s skill.
q The concerned authority of the fire brigade should make its
operational map for the quick access for the fire casualties.
q This project has made an effort to show the one way traffic, but also
there are many technical shortcomings. This should be done by
the Traffic Police force in precise and effective way.
q The policy makers should think of blackspots and take necessary
steps to find the causes of the accidents and necessary stops.
q The map can be more useful and dynamic as:
The map is only limited with accidents and traffic system we
can include the rescue features for other hazards such as landslide,
