Effects of Urban Growth on  the Buddhist Monasteries in the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau

 

Equation:

Un =Dn/63

Un is the urbanization level around the monastery n. Since the range of NSL data values on the pixels (Dn) was between 0 and 63, the range of Un values was theoretically between 0 and 1, with 0 representing the level of non-urbanization and 1 the maximum level of urbanization.
