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.

Heathrow, the world's busiest passenger airport; St Mary's on the Scilly Isles, perhaps Britain's most exotic holiday destination; Duxford in Cambridgeshire, site of the RAF museum; St Ives, popular Cornish cultural centre and working fishing village; Dover, white cliffs and ferries to France; Skegness, Lincolnshire's famously bracing resort; Wells-next-the-Sea in Norfolk, no longer quite next to the sea due to shifting sands; Milford Haven, Pembrokeshire container port; Stranraer, Ayrshire gateway to Northern Ireland… PORTS & AIRPORTS brings a surprising new angle to places such as these, and many more.ABOUT THE MILLENNIUM MAPStill being created, the Millennium Map is a fascinating venture. 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 £250,000. These planes are systematically taking vertical photographs of the whole of the United Kingdom from an average height of 5,500 feet, recording every object right down to a minimum size of 25cm.So far over 30km of nine-inch-wide film has been taken. 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.In what must be the ultimate endorsement of its national significance, Her Majesty the Queen is a private investor in The Millennium Map; and when completed, the map will provide a snapshot of life in the year 2000 as historically important as William the Conqueror's survey of 1086.
