The following story has nothing to do with Google Earth other than the slant it’s been given by the Times of India: “India’s answer to Google: Image Atlas”
Image Atlas will show the globe at a resolution of 2.5 meters per pixel with pictures taken from Indian satellites. It will be published next month by India’s National Remote Sensing Agency (NRSA). Adds Times of India:
Mindful of the concerns about Google Earth maps raised by President Abdul Kalam last month, NRSA’s bouquet of high-resolution images will not carry features of defence installations and, therefore, be of no use to the enemy.
Cute. And did I mention that Image Atlas is a 212-page book?
