Bhuvan Vs Google earth (Comparision)

ISRO is working on an ambitious project called Bhuvan (means Earth), a satellite mapping tool.
Bhuvan allows you to zoom far closer than the aerial view from a chopper. If Google Earth shows details upto 200 metres distance and Wikimapia upto 50 metres, Bhuvan will show images upto 10 metres, which means you can easily see details upto a three floor high building and also add information.

Bhuvan uses the data recorded by Indian satellites and the first prototype will be available by November.
