Bhuvan is a Geoportal of ISRO with a host of services covering visualization; free data download; thematic map display and analysis; timely information on disaster; crowd sourcing; and project-specific GIS applications. Bhuvan is developed with the help of various open-source tools. Since August 2014, Bhuvan uses Cesium for plug-in free 3D visualization of Indian Remote Sensing Satellite Imagery.
Cesium-based Bhuvan 3D supports dynamic overlay of Administrative, Infrastructure, and Hydrological boundaries specific to India. It also depicts various 3D glTF models with higher level of details for Indian cities. A search facility provides smooth fly-through for a given search result.
