The original title of the book: London Photographic Atlas

This is the most revealing London atlas ever published. ‘LONDON: The Photographic Atlas’ combines the vertical aerial photography of Getmapping.com, creators of the Millennium Map, with Collins' acclaimed street mapping – an unbeatable combination of photography and cartography.

If you live in Greater London, 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. 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 London 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. Finally, every street in Greater London – more than 50,000 in total – has been indexed with two page numbers – one relating to the photography and the other relating to the cartography.

LONDON: THE PHOTOGRAPHIC ATLAS is the first title in an exciting new series of books from HarperCollins Illustrated that tie in the Millennium Map, a contemporary Domesday Book destined to be a social record of the utmost historical importance.

Getmapping.com came up with a beautifully simple idea in 1998: photograph the whole of the UK from the air to create a kind of modern Doomsday Book. Then they and HarperCollins realised that the London part of the survey would give a unique view of one of the world's most famous cities, and so this book was born. It really is unbelievably simple, and of interest to any lover of London who also enjoys maps and photographs. Getmapping.com flew a plane at 5,500 feet taking photos automatically, then digitised the photos so they could be colour-corrected and adjusted to allow for variations in light, weather, contours and the plane's flight. The result is a homogenous set of photographs of the whole city, with a conventional street atlas stuck on the back. Every street in London is indexed to both the photographic and the cartographic atlas, so you should be able to find any place you want quickly and easily.

    This book is the ultimate gift for the person that you don't know what to buy for (provided they live in London).In a nutshell, this book is an A-Z that is made up of colour aerial photographs rather than drawings.So why is it so good?Actually, I don't know. There is actually very little that seperates this from an A-Z, but there is a magic quality about this book. You just HAVE to look things up - your house, your mum's house, your friend's house. You want to know what the gardens of people down your street look like.This book makes you feel like you have an American spy satellite over London. The short cuts you used to take are visible, even if they were through waste-ground.You must buy this book on-line. Why? Simply because every copy I have ever seen in a book shop has been wrecked by every single passer-by being compelled to flick through it and look something up. And there are very few books like that.It's big, heavy and a work of art. If you are paying under £45, its a bargain. Most people would pay twice that for a book of this quality and enduring appeal. It's a snapshot (literally) of what London looked like in 2000. Definetely something to keep for 50 years.Nobody can resist opening this book and looking at it, guests, family members and friends all want to find something here. Buy, buy, buy.
