London: The Photographic Atlas

Offering a level of detail hitherto restricted to military intelligence, "The Millennium Map" is a fascinating survey of both public and private worlds - not only is the car parked outside your front door fully visible, you can see bustling crowds of shoppers on Oxford Street and people taking it easy in their back gardens. It is so revealing, so pin-sharp, that it has excited the attentions of both defence experts and civil rights activists alike, with claims that it compromises both national security and personal privacy. Now, in this book covering the whole of London, you can judge for yourself. The story of how "The Millennium Map" was created is a fascinating one. The English part of the map has been the first to be shot. Starting in April 1999, light and weather permitting, four specially equipped aircraft flew the length and breadth of the country in strips - rather in the manner of a lawnmower - each one carrying state of the art camera equipment.
