Rooftop farming is a type of agriculture that is practiced on the roofs of buildings. This type of farming has many benefits, including the fact that it can help to reduce the amount of stormwater runoff, it can help to insulate the building, and it can provide fresh produce for the occupants of the building. It can be used to grow a variety of crops, including fruits and vegetables. In addition, it can also be used to raise chickens, bees, and other animals. It has many benefits for both the environment and the people who live in the building.
One of the main benefits of rooftop farming is that it can help to reduce the amount of stormwater runoff. When it rains, the water runs off the roof and into the gutters. This water can then end up in the sewer system or in the waterways. However, when there is vegetation on the roof, the water is absorbed by the plants and does not run off the roof. This helps to reduce the amount of water that ends up in the sewer system and helps to protect the waterways.
In addition to reducing stormwater runoff, rooftop farming can also help to insulate the building. The plants on the roof help to keep the building cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter. This can help to reduce the amount of energy that is needed to heat and cool the building, which can save money. Rooftop farming can also provide fresh produce for the occupants of the building. The crops that are grown on the roof can be used to supplement the diet of the people who live in the building. This can help to improve the health of the occupants and can also provide a source of income for the building owner. So, it is a type of agriculture that has many benefits for the environment and for the people who live in the building
This map book offers information that will be valuable for planning, promotion, and navigation activities. It also highlights the current state and future prospects of rooftop farming in the Banepa Municipality.
We believe this map book contains information useful for planning, promotion, and navigation activities. It also shows the present situation and future perspective of rooftop farming in Banepa Municipality. The point data was collected by field survey which is uploaded at OpenStreetMap and in ward number 6,7,8,9,10 of Banepa Municipality by using UAV the image was collected and processed and uploaded to OpenAerialMap.
By using this orthophoto whole imagery was digitized using the JOSM editor. During data collection, and digitization Geomatics Engineering society members were involved. This all data is available in OpenStreetMap All the maps in the map book were created using QGIS. This map book is part of the booster grant, which is supported by open mapping Asia pacific hub, OSM Nepal, and Kathmandu Living Lab and prepared by Geomatics Engineering Society
