This is the most revealing atlas of one of England’s most beautiful counties ever published. Getmapping Photographic Atlas of Surrey combines the vertical aerial photography of Getmapping.com with Collins' street and road mapping – an unbeatable combination of photography and cartography.
If you live, work in, or simply visit or love the county of Surrey you will already possess a personal stake in this book – within its pages you will be able to find your house, perhaps locate your car parked in the street, trace your route to work, and visit some of your favourite places. With coverage of all Surrey, and close-up views of major towns such as Kingston-upon-Thames, Richmond, Reigate, Epsom, Leatherhead, Redhill, Staines, Weybridge, Woking, Camberley, Guildford , Haslemere, and Farnham it is a unique record of the whole county.
On closer inspection you will spot patterns that are invisible from the ground, discover surprising links between unconnected areas, find large areas of greenery that you never knew existed, and explore new neighbourhoods for the first time. Even if you don't know the county well, you will find this book fascinating.
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; 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; and throughout the whole book the grid interval is 500 metres, so that distances can be accurately assessed.
Getmapping Photographic Atlas of Surrey is from the same series as London: the Photographic Atlas, already published to great acclaim. Both titles draw on the Millennium Map, a contemporary Domesday Book destined to be a social record of the utmost historical importance.
