Indian Space Research Organization has recently launched its indigenously developed 3D Virtual Earth software named BHUVAN with special emphasis on India, it has been marketed as the Google Earth killer and is available for free download via plugin. I have just tried it, it is pathetically slow and nothing in it impressed me much, Google Earth is far better, the slowness of BHUVAN renders it useless, who would wait for minutes for it to load, only to hang after that. The said zooming upto 10 meters is far from reality, in zooming it is even worse than Google Earth even for India imagery. As BHUVAN is still in its beta version, lets hope future versions to fix the bugs and make it atleast usable.
Features of BHUVAN:
Step 1: Registration at ISRO Bhuvan website
Step 2: Download Bhuvan Plugin
Links: First you need to register at Indian Govt. BHUVAN Website, after that Download BHUVAN Plugin from here. The website is pathetically slow and might not load for you.
In that case use BHUVAN Beta Alternate Download links
Download BHUVAN from Deposit Files
ISRO’s BHUVAN Download from Hotfile
Once you have registered and downloaded BHUVAN and installed it, Enter Bhuvan Web Client (requires username/password you used while registering). Enjoy
