ISRO Launches Bhuvan, Google Earth has a stiff competition

In Technology by Ashish Sinha352 Comments

And finally the day has arrived. We have covered ISRO’s Bhuvan development right from the day it was announced and after ~4-5 months of delay, ISRO has finally launched Bhuvan.isro bhuvan

“Bhuvan, an ambitious project of ISRO was started to take Indian images and thematic information in multiple spatial resolutions to people through a web portal through easy access to information on basic natural resources in the geospatial domain. Bhuvan  showcases  Indian images by the superimposition  of IRS satellite imageries on 3D globe. The degree of resolution showcased is based on the points of interest and popularity, but most of the Indian terrain is covered upto at least 5.8 meters of resolution with the least spatial resolution being 55 meters from AWifs Sensor.

Bhuvan Features

  • Visualise 2D and 3D image data along with rich thematic information on Soil, wasteland, water resources etc.
  • Fly to locations ( Flies from the current location directly to the selected location)
  • Heads-Up Display ( HUD) naviation controls ( Tilt slider, north indicator, opacity, compass ring, zoom slider)
  • Navigation using the 3D view Pop-up menu (Fly-in, Fly out, jump in, jump around, view point)
  • 3D Fly through (3D view to fly to locations, objects in the terrain, and navigate freely using the mouse or keyboard)

  • Drawing 2D objects (Text labels, polylines, polygons, rectangles, 2D arrows, circles, ellipse)
  • Drawing 3D Objects (placing of expressive 3D models, 3D polygons, boxes)
  • Snapshot creation (copies the 3D view to a floating window and allows to save to a external file)
  • Measurement tools (Horizontal distance, aerial distance, vertical distance, measure area)
  • Shadow Analysis (it sets the sun position based on the given time creating shadows and effects the lighting on the terrain)

How to Download & Install Bhuvan?

Register here. Download the Bhuvan plugin from here (its actually Skyline’s terraexplorer plugin) and Microsoft’s DirectX.

In order to install the plugin, you need to have the administrator privilege in your machine. The product works only in IE and is quite buggy to start with [View bhuvan pictures and screenshots]

All said and done, the product is very well timed – we are close to celebrate India’s independence day and Bhuvan is one crown that ISRO will be known for in the coming years.

What’s your opinion?

            ghar rehkar mail karne se kuch nai hota
            u idiots

          2. Jay

            Yes, u r right sarita. we shouldn’t give comments on other without knowing their position and responsibilities. And that’s fact that we r in race not only with china but with all the county of the world and they also know that they will beaten shortly so America have made partnership with us in atomic energy.
            You r full Devang b’coz u can’t understand that u can comment here is also our progress and it’s not by u or only me but by all sarkari members.

            Mr. Sarakari Babu,
            {1} {a}—–I had filed a civil case in small cause court in 1989 — i.e. 20 years
            before , On every date ” MUDDAT ” I go to court to get next MUDDAT.
            Today I strongly believe only KUDARATI NYAY [GOD] will give me justice .

            middle aged and Jeevan Das is old and similarly prosecuter also advances in age.
            The ad is about greenply plywood, which during this lengthy period has withstood the
            hammerings by the judge. This small ad has given tremendous insight into the judicial
            process in our country.Read about this on http://bijapurwala.blogspot

            {2} Go to any sarakari office ,not as SARAKARI BABU but only as an ordinary common man
            and then feel the behavior of sarakara babu , without any “fee” your file will not move for
            years.That time what I feel I can not write here.

            {3} {a}—–“Indian” is a 1996 Tamil film directed by S. Shankar. The film stars Kamal
            Haasan, Manisha Koirala, Urmila Matondkar…..
            The film was later released (dubbed) in Hindi as “Hindustani”
            and in Telugu as “Bharatheeyudu”
            {b}—–“Office Office” is an Indian, Hindi language sitcom
            starring Pankaj Kapoor, Sanjay Mishra and other television actors. It was aired on
            the SAB TV. Pankaj Kapoor portrays the role of Mussadilal in the series. The
            series is based on corruption and bribery in govt’s public offices.
            {c} In Sarakari offices , see the huge waste of electic energy.
            SO whoever is CORRUPT SARAKARI BABUs JUST SHUT UP AND GO TO
            SARAKARI OFFICES [HELL].

          4. Amit

            yes, frind you are right such type of people should not be in India. if they don’t respect our country and it’s system than leave it

          5. Jyotirmoy

            @Amit giving a contradictory statement is NOT a disrespect of a country. People who show their frustration/anger by showing the hard realities and inefficiencies about India are the true lovers of the country.

            Those who talk that such people should not be in India are either:

            1. Complete unaware about China’s real progress and where the rest of the world is headed.

            2. Politically inclined to create a mess of emotional blunders thereby leading to more pain and suffrage.

            I think you belong to the category 01. But if you belong to category 02, then there is no hope for you.

          i ve never seen such a self defeating citizen. with this ugly character he keeps on posting it again and again. one thing is clear. this idiot probably has not downloaded it yet because he doesn’t ve any clue of wat this prog is all about. secondly he admires himself of writing such intellectual comments containg things like “gears 3rd 4th breaks etc” and he wants it to be seen by all.if there is a species that can spoil even the slightest spirit of a nation here is a fine example. he 100% is an unemployed eating parent’s hard earned sarkari money.

  2. Rajib

    Hi,
    Why is the beta version not available for Mac OS. Now-a-days almost all new softwares are compatible with Windows and Mac OS.

    Further why does one have to register to get the application. If the purpose is to make it popular, it should be available without registration.

    Third, why ask what’s the purpose. Nobody is going to say they want to use it for wrong reasons even if they intend to.

    Thanks.

    1. Avijit

      Dear Rajib,

      This is ‘BETA’ version hence only for Windows, and secondly the software prowess of ISRO has not reached the level that it can release both ‘win’ and ‘Mac’ they’ve not even released a version which is compatible with firefox !!

      As far as purpose is concerned that’s just a formality even they know it… but they are ‘SARKARI’ at the end of the day my friend…

    2. pavan

      Hi Rajib,

      Bhuvan uses .Net Framework 2.0 which can run only in Windows platform. Hence it will not be compatible with Mac or others.

    3. Jay

      This is it’s initial period so it’s not possible to make it run on more than one OS..it may done shortly as it only works in IE.

      U don’t need to register…see my comments above n=on how to use it..

      Intended for wrong reason will not tell it but good user will tell is so that Bhuvan can add new features in it…Bhuvan already know the requirements of bad user so it’ll never help them even if the give Buvan their intense.

    1. aaa

      u r not fit to be an indian.. dont act too smart as if u can sit and develop.. This is fully an indigenous product which u r to be proud off.. No other country except US had this chance of seeing the whole globe with there countries made product.. be ashamed of u r self…

      1. AAA responder

        Not fit to be Indian? Fully indigenous? You must have facts before you can write this rubbish. There is nothing fully indigenous about Bhuvan just like there is nothing Indigenous about Tata Nano. Bhuvan has been made on computers made from western technology, by engineers who have studied from western universities, based on funds from western countries and are now trying to show that they are Indian? This is total hypocricy. The only thing Indian about it, is hypocricy.

        1. Hussain

          Mr.AAA no matter where they studied or where the technology came from. but they made India proud. we must appreciate somebody new innovation. i`m a sri lankan but I also proud my neighbor country’s great achievement. good luck INDIA…………

          1. Anil K. Dhiman

            Thanks Hussain,,,,
            India is great country and i also realize that it is a great achievement for indians that we also have a such a software that give gr8 competition to Google Earth,,,, 7
            I proud to be an indian.

        2. Uday Kiran

          Hello mister AAAResponder. Do you how many of our engineers are working abroad for their product developments. Nobody does nothing for free . Do you think if western countries gave funds that was free , they expect something in return.Try to be proud of what you are.Don’t always compare yourself to western countries. We have our own identity.

        3. Prakash

          I am proud to be an India. There is nothing that you can make 100 % indigenous, atleast, in today’s world. May be due to many reasons, but we have to borrow technologies from abroad, occassionaly. But that does not mean that we are dependent on them. Remember nobody gives you anything unless you are worth something. USA did obstruct the sale of super-computers to India, even when we were ready to pay. But now they are offering us the nuclear technology not out of pity of favour but sheerly because, if they don’t, it is they who will be the loser in the long run. This has been proved in the past by several incidents also by other countries. So one must be proud of his country. When a neighbour like a Sri Lankan [Mr. Hussain ] can appreciate our efforts, it seems you are not an Indian for sure. I dont say any more. Let me see how you Mr. AAA read between the lines

          1. Amitash

            correct man, even these leading firms like ibm, microsoft or say intel, they are using indian manpower and especially the brain power, in this era of modernization and globalization, we can’t even think of something to be indigenous….!!

        4. Ashok

          agreed with aaa, AAA remember that 80% engineers abroad are indian, 1st computer abroad was made by NRI, leaving this aside, u shud know there are indian companies producing computers, how do u know they made Bhuwan on foreign computer? hahahaha …. but i suggest aaa to be kool… kisi ke chillane se ISRO thode hi rukega?

          1. Ashok

            comments from AAA confusing me if he is 100 % ? never heard a name as AAA in india hahaha

        5. John Lalu

          Are suno to….sasura ‘AAA’ jo kahat hai bahut sahi hai. Hum hindustani bahut uchal rahe hai lekin hamri buniyad (base) — technology ki bahut weak hai.

          So, yeh bhuvan, phuvan chotdo aur bhaiswa (buffelo) ko char khilo….

          hi, dear friend. let me congratulate you for being an indian who can air whatever shit he thinks!!! secondly whats the use of reinventing the wheel again? thirdly these westerners are blissfully mis guided about entire number system and pl tell me the entire binary/ digital machine language which works on a ZERO was invwnted by some foolish non wesern univrsity trained indian. lastly definitly the westerners have used indians like you and me who are happy fighting each other and taken out the scientific wealth out of our scriptures and ancient documents. can you talk of sme great medical inventions (sushrut and charvak), great matematicians( banbhatta, aryabhattaetc) . when these westerners were roaming in jungles my friend we indians wre discovering astronomical nuances. theres lot it cant be put to few words and sentences and paras. thanks buddy enjoy your free life in GREAT INDIA.

        7. Neeraj

          My friend when “0 – ZERO” was invented by Indian scientist Aryabhatta which is the base of computer, how can you give the credit to western world.

        8. jai bharat

          hey AAA i’m not sure whether bhuvan is completely indigenous, but i’m very sure u r not indigenous because ur father must hav eaten something or used something made of western countries, before sleeping with ur mom, which produced multigenous product like u, and must think before wat u r writing… u BAST______…

        9. Prashanth

          Mr. AAA where are you from? first know about india and indians. Then talk. You are talking about computers. computers are mainly works on the basis of mathematics. Who gave this basics you know ? not western contry people what you are proud off. That is indians only. Indains not only given ZERO. trignometry is from india only. that to aryabhata found it. i am told only two thing. No need to read about all others of indians. Just know what aryabhata did. that itself is enough for you to change your mind about india and indians. Raj only said about performance. but you are going in some other way.

          !!!KNOWLEDGE IS NO ONCE OWN PROPERTY!!! so no point in discussing this.

          1. swap

            !!!KNOWLEDGE IS NO ONCE OWN PROPERTY!!! rightly said but its not air to depend on ie ,windows offsprings ,it should be compatible with irefox and must be released under gpl,as its being developed by public money

        11. JONATHAN JOHN

          YOW MAN U R ABSOLUTELY RIGHT… I ACCEPT U..IT AINT BETTER THAN GOOGLE EARTH.. GOOGLE EARTH WAS DEVELOPED BY AMERICANS IN D YEAR OF 1986 .. AND INDIAN CREATING SUCH SOFTWARE IN D YEAR 2009-10…. WHAT D F–K ARE INDIANS BOASTING ABOUT IT…

          02- FU–KING YOGA WHICH IS OF NO USE….

          1. JONATHAN JOHN

            AND PLZZZ DONT BOAST AGAIN AND AGAIN THAT ARYABHATT INVENTED ZERO AND TRIGONOMETRY…. BUT D POINT WHERE WE SHUD ADISCUSS IS ,,, WHO IS MAKING THE BEST USE OF MATHEMATICS AND SCIENCE.. PLZZ DONT BOAST THAT INDIA MADE SUCH A SOFTWARE….OKKK I CONGRADULATE INDIA FOR THIS..BUT BUT THERE IS NO POINT IN ARGUEING IN THIS TOPIC…
            TRY TO CHANGE D CURRENT INDIA.. NO MEDICAL FACILITIES…A WEIRD POLITICS .,, ILLITERACY,,,, UNEMPLOYMENT,,, FIRST RANK IN BRIBERY……..FIRST TRY TO BUILD INDIA IN EACH AND EVERY FEILD SO THAT U CAN STEP WID OTHER COUNTRIES..AFTER THAT BOAST URSELF..BUT ANYWAYS I CONGRADULATE INDIA FOR MAKIN SUCH SOFTWARE….BECAUSE INDIA ATLEAST GAVE A TRY AND DEVELOPED SUCH A SOFTWARE….BUT U MUST ALL ACCEPT THE TRUTH THAT BHUVAN IS AINT BETTER THAN GOOGLE EARTH…

          Hi AAA responder..I’ll not tell u more but u have done a crime which is unbearable for other Indians and that’s cause u have taken these comments…
          Our history is almost 10,000 years(might more or less) old, in other hand US’s history is almost 1000 years(as above) old…
          When our kings made counseling, they r roaming disrobed as a Zangli animals.
          And u should always remember that
          BAP BAP HOTA HAI…AUR BETA BETA HOTA HAI…

    The facts: Who’s silverline?
    This app uses a foreign engine. So the kodo’s as ususual have to go elsewhere. I wonder what it cost to import it !

    Where’s the Indian software component?
    If the actual expertise is from abroad what precisely have we acheived?
    If the app is foreign at least the imagery could be the best?
    Can the imagery be compared with digital globe? with world view? with
    geoeye?

    Why tell the media it’s far ahead before even testing it.
    It’s still in it’s infancy, depends on foreig software, and has
    little Indian contribution .. we must wake up and build such stuff
    ourselves. Surely a nation of 1 billion can build something exotic.

    1. Dan

      The satellite that sends back pics of the greatest resolution till date is INDIAN.

      Software that shows the data is the easiest part of this whole solution.

      Got it Mr. Francis?

    2. BOBBY

      Hello Mr. Francis.

      Whatever u have written about hiring services from the webstern country, pls note that even u did not come in this world without ur mothers ability to concieve……do u also think that u were born without ur mother…..

      Another fact, you know there are so many contries in the world those import food items from india. so what will u say about them , r they not able to produce food in their country. You should see the other side of the coin also , we are always dependant on each other because we are social animals and can not live on our own with the limited resources….. You must have heard of indian government has been given contract by Maldives to protect it.

      Is it the great achievement. It was as great achievment as it was when India tested nuclear bomb.

  6. Shobhit Dubey

    East or west India is the best. I would like to thanks the team to put in thier efforts, to bring out this project with flying colors.

    Indian just needs a start up, single start up, once they do, no one can beat them. No one.

    Congrats INDIA!!!!

  7. elango

    Why are you guys getting so crazy about Bhuvan? The product is not usable at all (doesn’t work!).
    Isnt this an eyewash? ISRO is using somebody else’s technology and just mapping out the data…where is the innovation here?

    I AM PROUD THAT INDIAN CAN DO IT……

  17. Jaideep

    Congratulations only because this was the first attempt to create any such thing. Otherwise, it pure crap! Not sure whether to call it Bhuvan, Skyline, or TerraExplorer. Very complicated for a first timer or rather “user-unfriendly”. Terribly slow, and eventually saw nothing more than a totally blurred image. If you wish to blame it on my 256kbps internet speed, is every common Indian supposed to upgrade to higher internet speed package just to be able to get a clear view of Bhuvan? How user-friendly is that? Besides, at it’s Skyline > TerraExplorer > Main page the first 2 options we see are USA and France! So we can say Made in India, Made by Indians, for anyone but Indians. And to top it all, this is introduced just two days prior to Indian Independence Day. Hope they work on it properly and make it much easier and relevant for our own native people first and then for rest of the world. Wish your team all the best and looking forward to an improved version. Thanks for experimenting with something new though. Best of luck, ISRO Team.

  18. Jaideep

    In addition, at the TerraExplorer main page, there is “not a single Indian city” available in the drop-down list of cities at the very top of the page.

    Proud to be an Indian…But please remember Mumbai 26/11 attack. Google earth helped terrorists a lot in it. So may be, some terrorist groups may also misuse this. So please take care ISRO.

  32. AA

    Hi All,

    Whatever it is, it is a first attempt by India and I must appreciate ISRO. I did read many comments above and the main debate is whether it is indigenous or not. We don’t know the right answer and we should not try to know this because Google has already introduced long back this type of service. Another thing, it is just a software development by just collecting information about map, that’s it. this is not any Rocket science , so guys dont be tooo much proud of this. For your kind information India still does not have its own navigation system. USA, CANADA, EUROPE, CHINA, JAPAN, RUSSIA all has it, some uses only for defense purposes and some of them used for both defense and civil use. I dont remember what is completely indigenous in india. Practically speaking nothing. The whole Indian defense is dependent on other countries. They buy everything and for show purpose they make some of them in their land. Guys be practical…don’t get too much emotional. They even cant make an Aircraft Engine. At least china makes its own. Good lick guys with your own “Bhuvan”…

  33. threedstar

    Hi,
    Its a good attempt by ISRO.But they have to take a professional approach in developing a well designed and userfriendly website.If you got to their website you will be desperate because site is slow,links not working..etc.they have to take care of that also…

  34. Razaul Hassan

    Its a great news, my heartiest wishes to Team ISRO.

    Kuch baat hai ki hasti,Mit tey nahin humari.

    1. Ajay

      A big Propaganda and Hype before Independence Day even with a low quality product. If they are soo good, why don’t they make their own Fighter Planes and Aircraft carrier instead of buying from Russia, USA, France, Israel etc. That would be much more appreciated by Indian instead of showing this crap which does not work properly. I believe they don’t have many good software professionals working there in ISRO. All Good people are in USA. My request to ISRO, DRDO etc, please develop your R&D sectors instead of show off. Try to stop buying ready made stuffs and build in your own labs. You can fool 80% Indians but not like people who works in Foreign Labs and knows the reality. If you are reading this then believe me in India, there is no fruitful research and development going on. They just waste money and dumb up files. They even cant make a better software better than Google Earth. This is a real shame!!!

      1. vp

        to Mr Ajay, i think you have no %$$#ing clue of where and how softwares are made, i m in software since many yrs and i know how and where softwares are made, most of the companies in world gets their softwares made in india, although must say google is smartest on the street but this concept of one softeare is made in one country is gone out of the door long back, companies have their developmment offices everywhere, regarding fighter jets etc, there are lot of challanges that india faces that other countries that you mentioned has no clue, i think when something good or attempt of making good is done, we should be looking at positives than who did what and where its done.
        I would say well done india.

      2. Rajesh

        if you have such a knowledge first you have to remember that at first google earth was also having a lot of problems and bugs in it. Google earth also has its initial stage if you are on top does not mean that you are not born at the top.you have climbed to the top. pls remeber this before you comment. No one is trying to fool you guys. no need for that too……

      3. bobby

        i don’t know who the hell r u mr ajay,and whats wrong with all u guys who want india or ISRO to make Fighter Planes and Aircraft carrier……i too want them to do that, but there r some problems u should understand. It is not the incapability of ISRO or DRDO scientist that is stopping them from doing it. But the incapabilities of the central government to provide funds for the project. And also those people including politicians who think that spending money on such things is waste, when the nation have so many problems with. And also the time factor… no technology has been developed in a period of a night. And we don’t have time because Pakistan and china are getting closer by each passing day. And u people sit back in ur home in front of ur pc and write all the non scene u want. I don’t understand why u guys r soo harsh to them. u give them time and money they will deliver. know stop criticizing them and start appreciating their work.

        1. Ajay

          Look guys, I did not want to discourage anybody. I know they did something and I must appreciate their effort. I also know about the F******g Indian politics and those F*****g politicians. Because of that the complete system has become paralyzed. Somebody asked who the hell I am, for your kind information I was very closely related to some of the Indian defense Labs (not mentioning names for security reasons). I have seen the politics and work environment there. They maintained typical government job style, no competition and a lot of politics inside. Well, u guys also know these so i don’t need to explain u. India has soo many software professional but almost all of them works for USA…Can you justify this? Whats the callous Govt is doing? People like me working in other countries. Do you think we did it intentionally??? No dear, they wanted me to keep watching as a layman, do nothing, follow them, if you try to do something good…they will not promote u..because of lobbying and internal politics..No competition at all dear. Anyway, I don’t wanna discuss my story here. Yes, they have to make their own Aircraft carrier and Fighter Planes….They have to, I am saying this because I love India. It is not that Govt don’t spend money, Do you have any idea how much of them got wasted??? Do you know what is the problem there, they can not keep students from best schools over there (IIT’s). Every nation faces challenge but it is the people who will overcome the challenges and rebuild their nation.How many years our nation will be dependent on others. Look at china dear, with so many problems, they have shown development. Do you have any idea how much develop they are???? way better than India….look i am not criticizing, just making an example. So don’t take it personally, take it rationally and think wisely. Thank you guys for reading this and God Luck with everything!!!

  36. Sandesh Sharma

    First I want to give warm congratulation to ISRO for making India pride on the eve of Independence Day of Great India. This is proving that nothing is impossible for Indian now. We can develop and innovate things without highly facilitate infrastructure.

    At last i am thanking to GOD for being me An INDAIN
    I PROUD TO BE AN INDIAN…………

  37. Sujoy

    Thank you ISRO. This is how we can conquer our position in technology. Waiting for RUSSIA’S GPS system to help our defence navigation. Please tell of how do i get a mobile version of the map? Thank you once again.

  38. kushan

    this is the most pathetic inter phase i’ve come accross. Stop encouraging ISRO people on such a lame effort.

    Typical Indian way of over hyping things and ending in a puddle.

    Thats a great tool. I am nt interested if it beats google earth or not, but me interested to see how much successful and useful this application can be turned into, as it is a pure Indian Technical Initiative. Jai Ho!!!

  41. Kabutar

    Kya bakwaas chizz hai yeh…works only with IE ,then it uses skyline technologies for software purpose .Third class product from ISRO .Google Earth ki Jai Hoo.They shoudn’t lacuhed this thing without even getting closer to Google earth in first step .

    It isn’t even close google map .Not even 10 % .Made by an Indian doesn’t really mean to appretiate everything that Indians make .

    I hope ISRO does something or else all the hype will be gone and not body will use it any more (as it is useless right now )

    1. Ajay

      Great Comments!!!I don’t understand why these guys are soo much emotional about India and Indians. This is an age of globalization where you do business all over the world. Dont just be like a frog inside a well…we Indian, we made it, great blah blah!!!Let me know what did ISRO do new here. It is just a copy/past of Google earth with a lower version after many years. If they do something new what none has ever done or thought about then i will salute them. With millions of software engineer and the result is zero, producing crap. I doubt how many good software engineers work for India, all good people are working for American companies. Just a shit!!!!

  42. Anbuselvan

    Dear Indians,

    dear sir,

    Being a great indian i am very happy to know about Bhuvan. because of great democracy some people like ajay and AAA are wondering like….dear collegue indians if they suppose borned in pakistan or any other islamic country will they allow such type of comments…. before commenting on ISRO once please look into the past achievements…..HAPPY INDEPENCE DAY…..

    1. Ajay

      Dear Bhagavan,

      I have stayed in 5 different countries including India and i have some idea about democracy. There are other countries where you will get more freedom than you are getting in India (if you are there). I can feel the difference. If you have not seen freedom of speech/democracy in other nation, how can u say that. I did not stay in any muslim country, so can not comment about them like u did.
      thanks!!

  44. rahul

    where are indian cities ?????? whts the use if maps of other than indian cities are shown buy calling it Indian Satellite ?

    1. Ranga

      Bhokali marne mein kya aata jaata hey.

Jisne unko software supply kiya hein sayed woh indian cities add korne ko bhul geya hain…just kidding. How is the quality of their satellite imagery system? anyone has any idea? Bolto raha hein ki bahut kuchh karega, kaam toh ratti-bhor ka nehi dekha aaj tak….

  45. sujoy

    Bhuvan is a product that cant be used by anybody..whats the pt. in launching such products which put India to shame? If there are beauraucratic issues, first solve that and build something that cannot be termed mediocre.

    In it’s current state, Bhuvan is 101% mediocre..with no sense of usefulness.

  46. Baskar

    Can any one tell me why Bhuvan is not opening, it tells “link appears to be broken” what to do, i have installed bhuvan

  47. Demi-God

    WHAT A WASTE OF TIME…ALL PICTURES ARE BLURRED. CRAPPY GIFT TO THE COUNTRY ON INDEPENDENCE DAY. STOP MAKING SHITTY EXCUSES AND BUILD A GOOD PLATFORM-INDEPENDENT PRODUCT WITHOUT COPYING FOREIGN COS. SOFTWARES.

    1. pj

      Copy/Paste, usual policy of India. Cant not copy/paste..then buy it for foreign countries……hahaha..chutiya bana raha hey public ko shaala……public ka paysa hajam karneka achha dhanda bana liya hey…shaala chairman ka degree dekho….kidhar kidhar pass kiya, ulta sidha univ se…politics kiya, chairman ban geya…..isse kya expect karoge bhaay….hazom karo aaur bindaas raho..God Bless Them!!!

  54. Anand

    Hi………..
    This is really a shame on ISRO and other R & D organizations of INDIA. By spending our tax money in creating this kind of craps.
    Let me tell you guys who support and give hype to this crap. This is a third class product made by ISRO India. We just cant see any thing in the map. Its a shit. Like all other R & D products this is also a crap.
    Like……..
    1) LCA — more than 2 decades and its not accepted by IAF itself, i accept there are some issues, but even after that its incapable metal crap. They are now going to design Mark 2.
    2) GTRE GTX-35VS Kaveri…….. i was six year old kid when it was started in 1986, now i am nearly 29 years old. Hahahaha……. its a crap. It just cant make any fighter fly.
    3) Arjun MBT…… great crap of India. Took more than 40 years……. hahaha to develop a just a battle tank. Crap…..
    4) Insas Assault Rifle……. crap. Some times they will not fire at all. hahaha. Later they rectified it i think. without testing they will give it into the hands of our soldiers to let them die.
    5) Multi-Mode Radar for LCA…….. that is also a crap. They cant make it. still working on…… but no results.

    there are lot of things to list…….

    now they will work on to create on more crap that is MCA.

    But i also want to appreciate for carbon-fibre composite technology….. its a success, and this licensed to Airbus, Boeing, and infosys.
    All the best for all the R&D organizations of India. Please try to give good things, before testing dont release it. And put your real efforts. i heard people at GTRE sleep for hours in labs. Kick those people out. and bring some real hard working guys.
    All the best……… i love my India. do some good stuffs.

    1. neel

      dont u think what u saying off the track of bhuvan ? and what are u saying ? do u know what research undergoing in AIF or navy ? u dont hear them bcz they r classified.i cant name them..but be proud that we are indigenous and doing that kind of stuff what is unimaginable for a country like india and the kind of funding we get. be proud that we are building things and in way we are also failing sometimes .can u name some bullshits made my Russian and American govt ? u can fill some GB of data on failed report of missions and burn them and sell them to make some money.

      u name a radar of LCA what about PSLVII ?do u know how many country today repy on our PLSV to send things up in orbit ?

      be proud to be an indian.what r u doing by the way ?what is ur contribution for ur country except criticism ?

      who are the peoples sleeping ? are not they our peoples ? u r announcing as if some pak ppls are eating ur tax money and sleeping.

      wake up,dont sleep and assume. do things what u r doing and let others do their things. and dont be a fool to spit on ur own mens face including urself.

    2. Ajay

      I ABSOLUTELY AGREE WITH U. PLEASE READ MY PREVIOUS COMMENTS. I KNOW THEY DO NOTHING EXCEPT WASTING GOVT. MONEY AND MAKING PUBLIC FOOL. NOW WE CAME TO KNOW THAT BHUVAN WAS NOT MADE BY THEM, THEY GOT HELP FROM USA……THIS IS HARD TRUTH THEY CAN NOT SURVIVE WITHOUT USA, RUSSIA, ISRAEL ETC.

      1. Ajay

        MY PREVIOUS COMMENT WAS FOR ANAND AND THIS IS FOR NEEL. BEFORE FEELING PROUD EVERYDAY OUT OF NOTHING TRY TO DO SOMETHING WHICH U CAN REALLY PROUD ABOUT. I WOULD RATHER SAY PLEASE BECOME MATURE AND PRACTICAL AND NOT FEELING PROUD AT EVERY MOMENT IN YR LIFE JUST BECAUSE U R AN INDIAN.

        1. rakesh

          hey anand and ajay ref 16 aug coomments .do you people think that you are the person who are more intelligent and tech savvy technocrat who more about technology and research than scientist and research person working on this projects ….giving ur bullshit like cooments… May be India is not Excellent ,But inpursuit of excellence ….not matter u r licking for US Uk or any country will not help you ..when u will be in mess this crap will only help you not ur favour for other countries ….why dont u people become consultant for indain govt if u thin ur very higly intelleigent and can give guidance to indain scientist an research persons …..as u people thin u have more access to knowledge.

    By using bhuvan we have to expose all the secrets of america,wch they had tried before

    1. Ajay

      THIS IS OBVIOUS. INDIA NEVER DID ANYTHING WITHOUT HELP FROM DEVELOPED COUNTRIES. AND NOW…..ALL THE IMMATURE INDIANS…PLZ STOP FEELING PROUD..JUST BECAUSE U R INDIAN…..THIS IS A WARNING……………IF U DON’T WORK, U WILL NEVER BECOME INDEPENDENT AND DEVELOPED. SPEND MORE TIME ON THE LAB…THIS IS FOR ISRO AND DRDO MEN. GOD BLESS U GUYS!!!!

      1. Anand

        Hi Ajay……… ur right. and thanks for supporting …….. also i read ur previous comments. Our people are sentimental about India and Indian feelings…… except that nothing. The same thing is used by politicians to fool us.
        No matter who does it……. we should judge it by its usefulness and success, not by foolish feelings like made in India…

        Hey Neel like u i am also an Indian man….. i am doing my work and will do it always, no one needs to tell me that. You just take a look at this CRAP BHUVAN….. then tell me. Can that beat Google Earth???? i saw about this BHUVAN in ET… in that they said, googles view is from 200m but our Bhuvan can go upto 10M distance view. hahahaha
        what a crap?????????

          Mr Ajay, you says that India cannot do on it’s own. true. but it suits to the so called western countries and US too. without other country and techno savvy support it is not possible for the US to achieve the same in Space and other scientific inventions. is there any software that made in US without the support of non American? How many genuine US software engineers are working for the success of their so called Space station mission? This so called Americans are sucking our resources and our intellectual properties such as our young brains. An American worker gets more salary than a non American software engineer in US. Earlier they stolen our wealth. now we makes many a technical product whether it is a software or a product without a name and title. but the name and title will be given by the so called technology giants and they seek patent for the same and in return we gets half a square meal.

  65. Ranjithnair

    I can’t download this site. pls tellme how its download?

  66. devajeet

    WOW Bhuvan is great…ISRO is great…INDIA is great. If anyone has a problem with BHUVAN it’s their problem. BHUVAN is still in it’s nascent stages and am sure it will become better than Google Earth in 2-3 years. Though you can’t zoom as much as GE for the time being but it is a beta version and improvements will take place slowly.

    Those who think BHUVAN=CRAP GO #@%* !!!

  67. francis

    The facts: Who’s silverline?
    This app uses a foreign engine. So the kodo’s as ususual have to go elsewhere. I wonder what it cost to import it !
    To Dan / Bobby etc

    We don’t seem to understand that the power is in the software

    If the actual expertise is from abroad what precisely have we acheived?

    The actual imagery with ISRO is far superior to what they are releasing

    Bhuvan has been built on Skyline technology ! We should feel
    humiliated .. little Indian contribution ..
    wake up .. what are our software developers doing? Jai Hind

    ISRO must sponsor Indian companies if they cannot build it themselves.
    Anyone know what this has cost the nation? How much forex?

    Chill down and let’s start working.

    1. Ajay

      Right u are. I think ISRO wanna get some big Govt money and for that they need to show some initiation, and this is that. It wont cost that much. Software has already made by Google (or some company worked for Google)so it is not unknown to the software industry. Yes, ISRO should use deshi companies for this. Neither they have that much manpower nor quality….I know who gets there, so i have a little idea about them. My suggestion is build up some small projects (Divide the big) and divide them in very small groups (7-12 people), fix a deadline, tell them if failed, u r out or will be demoted…see the result in 3 years dude. Until u kick-out worthless guys u cant get results. They should change the rule ” It is a govt job and nobody can do anything”……………Any suggestions???????off course from quality people..and please dont be proud again….Thanks!!!!

  68. Jat

    I agree that bhuvan is no match with google earth at least for the time being and also the ISRO should have tested it properly before going live with the software. But I do not understand these ppl who are criticizing all the indian for their attitude and work culture ( @Ajay/@Anand ). If you guys are so concerned about the Indian way of doing things.. Then come to India and change the culture here. Sitting outside and earning in $$ and then making such stupid comments here on a public portal is no solution to this.

    Congrats for the efforts ISRO.

  69. NKA

    I have not gone through the bhuwan. but one thing I am quite sure that some people have inferiority complex being an Indian. They are talking like they are supereb, very hard working and busy. But they have time to post reply again and again only to critisize the country. But they forget that a nation does not have an image separate from its citizens. Considering the limitations we have in our couuntry, I think whatever our scientists are doing, they are doing well. Nation is just like ur parents. If u dont like ur parents, you should be thrown out of the home. Being a professional myself (CA), I strongly believe that we have made remarkable progress in last few decades. I am an Indian and proud to be an Indian. Sentiments are not our weakness but our strength and identity as indian. Bye n tk care..

  70. Shalini

    Hello ISRO & My dear Friends

    Congratulations for doing such a great job ….. I havent used this software yet but while installing I came to read all your comments….. One thing is common whether its Mr. Ajay or some Mr.XYZ who are discussing Goods and Bads of Country.
    First thing is, its up to US that what we are perceiving from our country. Today we talk about our country getting Under developed , or poor or blah blah……..
    But have we ever gave any thought that what we are doing for our country … Getting a good job, earning 40-50k , one Honda City and a Life partner,,,,,, thats the only motto we have in our l;ife ….. before blaming to our country just look in yourself that what we r contributing ……

    I just dont want to discuss about it …just its my opinion ….. but I believe that there are some people who care for our country … and ISRO is a group of those such “some” people……

    and guys no hard feelings ……… just chill ………

  71. monika

    its gud …………………….bt hw i download bhuvan software …….
    and hw its work ……………..its vry proud too search on indian software …

  72. Y. R. Mody

    I like the interface but honestly it is far off from being a world beater. Even after delay and so much of hype I am far from happy with what I see

    11 MB of plugin that works only on IE and pathetic speeds of download.
    Application crashes more times than it works. The search results are all lost.

    Looks like something outsourced to Microsoft. Its kind of proving the theory that our IT pro’s are only good for labour outsourcing rather than skills

    I hope things get better in future. I think they should hire some top quality consultants for UI, hardware setup and infra and communication. Wishing ISRO and Bhuvan good luck

  73. sunny

    this creation is a pride for our india this creation proves the concealed power of india inherited by our culture, our god, our beliefs, our knowledge, our technology and last but not the least our hard work. yes, i m proud to be an indian and every should also belonging to this country. we should stand up for our country and should do something for her pride and honour. ISRO has done a great job and all other IT companies- TCS, Infosys, Wipro …………….. best of luck and congrats.

  74. KISHORE

  78. Prince

    hi guys……….i m proud to call me The INDIAN, this is our time now, wooooo

  79. Srimann Rakshit

    Its all a big pain in the ass to read through all the crap that some of the highly emaciated and soul ridden, pessimistic minded bots have said above…. but I think its our duty to congratulate ISRO for whatever its aiming at… though the process has to go on…. which no doubt they will achieve!

    Three Cheers for ISRO and INDIA…!!! hats off!

  80. dayal

    1. sorena

      Rohit,

      Which software are you talking about. The one I downloaded from the ISRO site doesn’t work.

  110. khaleeluddin

    i am very proud of this because this is developed by ISRO

  111. Deepu

    are bhai yeh isro ki bhuvan hai kahaan mujhe to aaj tak nahi dhikhi.baaki keh nanak sthir kuch naahi.

  112. Deepu 2nd comments

    bahut bahut wadhayee bayee isro waleyan nu mere walon per is nu dekhan layee kya karna hai koi mainu eh taan dasse, tuhaadi badi meharbani hovegi.

  113. Arun

    They said it will be better than google earth, but it seems that the view offered is of much less resolution than google. Hope it will be better once the beta is over.

  114. vivek singh patel

    i am very proud of this because this is developed by ISRO

  115. Kushan

    Pathetic….ISRO can never beat google with such a lame interface and slow speed. Stop praising unnecessarily.

  116. sorena

    Bhuvan is shit as compared to Google Earth.
    Bhuvan doesn’t work at all.
    Let alone a town, I can’t see a huge city like Aligarh through Bhuvan.
    It is as useless as any other Govt project in India.
    It is such a shame.

  117. ssbhatti

    I read the hype about Bhuvan being able to zoom to 10 m versus Google’s 100m. I was very happy and “proud to be an Indian”.
    I downloaded it and found that Bhuvan does not even give images that are a fifth as detailed as the free google version, besides hanging at the slightest excuse.
    Now I’m disappointed and a bit ashamed that an Indian Governmental organization would stoop to misrepresentation to try and get accolades, which judging by the majority of comments on this site they seemed to have succeeded in getting.Most of the people giving them accolades have probably not tried out the plugin. I doubt anybody could praise ISRO without choking after actually trying the product. And as for those who think ISRO should be commended for just trying, I would say that we should stop being satisfied with substandard products.

  118. Santosh P Chordiya

    How can I download bhuvan ? There is any charges for registration & downloading ?

  119. naveen

    its really great …. brillient job by indian scientists…
    but a lot to be improved.. if we want to compete with google… all the best …

  120. karthik

    great great great great infinity of valuable salutes to the ISRO.
    jaihind, none of the world people could compete Indians… here we are from the bedrocks towards your buildings…

  121. uber

    with an active download speed of 1.6mbps and top end pc i can only see a blurrred image that too from a very high altitude. isro is fooling people. they r acting like global jokers. cant even copy and paste. what a shame. keep fooling around bhuvan. waste ur time and money. all those google earth bashers watch what u want on bhuvan only if u can, ont use google earth

  122. sanjaykumar devar

    i was intrested to watch our nation using tkis software…..

  123. SHAKER

  130. dinesh

    hi guys,
    As alwayes, govt. web site boss.
    very slow, not user friendly,
    verry poor look.
    have improve to compete Google.
    far behind

    1. Devang

      plz dont waste your time as it is SARAKARI,run by not quality officers but by quantity people who have passed their exams only with minimum passing marks.cant u see this in all sarakari kacheri ? v should not in race with china but with Bangladesh,Ethiopia,Sudan only then v will win.just because of illiterate sarakari baabus. v have 3 or 4 th gear & sarakari baabus have only breaks+reverse gear.,..

  131. Rajath

    Hi,
    Great software. But, I think our satellites are capable of a better resolution. Would have been excellent if the resolution enabled street level viewing at least for prominent cities in India.
