London: The Photographic Atlas combines the aerial photography of Getmapping.com with Collins’ acclaimed street atlas mapping. Within its pages, you will spot patterns that are invisible from the ground, discover surprising links between unconnected areas, and explore neighborhoods. Even if you don’t know London well, you will find this atlas fascinating and easy to use. The photography and cartography share the same standard grid system, meaning you can cross–reference quickly between the two elements; both photography and cartography are map–accurate; and throughout, the grid interval is 500 meters, so that distances can be accurately assessed. Finally, every one of the 50,000 streets in Greater London has been cross–indexed. A unique and magnificent record of the city.About the Author:
