Bhuvan which means ‘earth’ in Sanskrit will allow users to navigate  and zoom into any 8-23-2009 8-54-22 PMpart of the world with restrictions and exceptions to sensitive and important places and discover virtual earth in 3D space with specific emphasis on Indian region.Bhuvan is developed by ISRO, Indian Space Research Organisation  with a very important role played by National Remote Sensing Agency .



  • Google Earth works on a downloadable client, Bhuvan works within the browser (only supports Windows and IE 6 and above).
  • Bhuvan would then be better than the free version of Google Earth, which can display up to 200m(Bhuvan can zoom up to 10 metres from the ground level) 
  • The navigation tools are similar to Google Earth (GE).
  • Users need to create an account and download a plug-in.
  • Bhuvan packs a lot of data on weather, water bodies and population details of various administrative units. 
  • Users can also not edit any data or tag locations.
