|Be a Bhuvanite
All users of Bhuvan are termed as ‘Bhuvanites’. The advantage of being a Bhuvanite is that you see information that is otherwise dry and academic,in ways that are visually fascinating. It helps you capture large databases of satellite data, which can be transformed into 3D presentations that capture the imaginations of the rest of us.
Bhuvanites of all age groups can use this 3D geoportal and experience the comprehensive globe with multi resolution imagery, thematic information, historical multi temporal imagery, and other points of interest. As a Bhuvanite you can explore and visualise the world in a 3D landscape along with all other wide ranging tools to explore Bhuvan.
Bhuvanites can also make use of the link termed as ‘Developers’ on the globe display page. This functionality provides the Bhuvan Application Program Interface (API) for the users and allows them to build and visualize new functionality. This Bhuvan API describes the classes and objects required to integrate Bhuvan Globe or develop a client application. All Bhuvanites get a chance to work on various API’s and also test their functionalities.
The Bhuvan API lets you embed a true 3D digital globe, into your web pages. Using the API you can draw markers and lines, drape images over the terrain, allowing you to build sophisticated 3D map applications.
