India: Indian Space Research Organisation”s (ISRO) geoportal Bhuvan, which helps in geo-mapping and navigation across the country, has turned 3-dimensional.
“The new 3D feature of the portal is ISRO”s attempt to bring Bhuvan at par with Google Earth. The geoportal also includes Pocket Bhuvan. It is accessible on all smartphones and functions like Google Navigation,” said Himanshu Pandya, a scientist at the Space Application Centre (SAC).
“The biggest advantage that Bhuvan has over Google Earth and Google Navigation is that it is was able to map even the remotest corner or village of the Indian territory,” added Pandya.
