Indian space agency Isro to roll out a rival to Google Earth, Times Online

"Emboldened by its first mission to the Moon, India is to take on a target closer to Earth: Google. The Indian Space Research Organisation (Isro), which is based in Bangalore, the Silicon Valley of the sub-continent, will roll-out a rival to Google Earth, the hugely popular online satellite imagery service, by the end of the month. The project, dubbed Bhuvan (Sanskrit for Earth), will allow users to zoon in to areas as small as 10 metres wide, compared to the 200 metre wide zoom limit on Google Earth."
