Google earth’s Desi rival?

After NASA, India’s very own ISRO has its earth mapping software ready for public use – Bhuvan. Here’s an interesting list of facts on Indiatimes.

While, it does sound ambitious at the least, what is surprising that the ISRO servers were not even ready to accept the huge amount of traffic that converged at their servers 🙂

Interestingly, the ISRO’s official Bhuvan website was down and not accessible!

Not even close to being in the same league… Requires Windows, IE and on top of all that a login and the execution with admin privileges of a closed source program with admin privileges. No way am I gonna even touch that with a 10 foot pole. This is just lame.
