A compilation of 100 vertical aerial photographs of the capital's most noteworthy features. From Tower Bridge to Buckingham Palace, from Hampstead Heath to Canary Wharf, this volume uses Getmapping's aerial photography to bring a new perspective to these well-loved places. Key information, facts and figures and descriptions of each site complement the spectacular aerial pictures. The aerial mapping is extracted from Getmapping's Millennium Map. Inspired by the Domesday Book, Tristram Cary and Joe Studholme of Getmapping.com commissioned four specially equipped aircraft to fly the length and breadth of the country in strips - rather like a lawnmower - each one carrying state-of-the-art camera equipment valued at #25,0000. These planes are systematically taking vertical photographs of the whole of the UK from an average height of 5500 feet, recording every object right down to a minimum size of 25cm. After processing, each photograph is scanned at high resolution, subsequently undergoing a process known as geo-correction, which removes distortions caused by the tilt of the aircraft and the contours of the ground; the individual files are then colour-balanced and spliced together to form a single map-accurate "mosaic" of the entire country.
