If you live anywhere in England, you should already feel right at home within this book. However well you think you know the country, though, close inspection of its pages should reward you with some amazing insights into the fabric of the landscape: you will spot patterns and textures (both natural and man-made) that are all but invisible from the ground, discover surprising features shared between entirely unconnected areas, and explore new corners of the country for the very first time. The photographic atlas is easy to use. The photography and the cartography share the same standard grid system, meaning you can cross-reference quickly between the two elements; and both photography and cartography are "map accurate", as the photography has been geo-corrected, a process that removes the distortions in the original aerial photography.

From the open plains of East Anglia, the wild fells of the Pennines, and the rocky coastline of the West Country to the cityscapes of London, Birmingham, and Manchester, England is truly a land of geographical extremes. No corner is left untouched by human hand, evidence of which is visible everywhere, from fields strewn with Iron Age settlements to the sprawling suburbs of the 20th century. Whether you know the country or not, close inspection of these pages will reward you with amazing insights into the fabric of the English landscape. The photography and cartography, which are both map–accurate, share the same standard grid system, meaning you can cross–reference quickly between the two elements. A fascinating, remarkably detailed reference for Anglophiles and map lovers.About the Author:
