These scientists belong with the Hyderabad-based National Remote Sensing Agency. They have used the data from the Indian satellites like Resourcesat-1 in order to develop this website.
Bhuban is said to have more provisions than Google Earth. It is claimed that it is more user-friendly. Users are expected to zoom into the maps of Bhuban up to 10 meters when capacity of Google Earth and Wikemapia is up to 200 meters and 50 meters respectively.
Indian scientists have targeted wasteland mapping and terrain profile and these are rural and thematic applications. Details of weather and humidity levels are also within the goal. Information approved by the Government of India will be displayed and sensitive ones are to be blocked.
