Download ISRO’s BHUVAN: India’s Google Earth [Mini Review]

21 August 2009 By Shashank


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:

  • Explore Earth in 3D
  • Better much closer view of India’s Geography
  • Fly to locations
  • Snapshot creation
  • Heads-Up Display ( HUD) naviation controls ( Tilt slider, north indicator, opacity, compass ring, zoom slider)
  • Measurement tools (Horizontal distance, aerial distance, vertical distance, measure area)

How to Download and Install BHUVAN

Step 1: Registration at ISRO Bhuvan website

Step 2: Download Bhuvan Plugin
