London close up


192.com has launched the most detailed aerial photographs of London currently available on the internet. The amazing new ‘super zoom’ detail offers the ultimate bird’s eye view of the capital.

You can see the colour of clothing worn by tourists in Trafalgar Square, as well as the eerie shadows they – and the famous statues - cast over one of the world’s most famous urban spaces. Many of the Capital’s iconic sights can be seen in a new perspective, from the London Eye to the Thames Barrier. A bustling Brick Lane contrasts with sedate Mayfair Squares; visitors feed the animals at London Zoo while the Capital’s in-crowd take a stroll on nearby Primrose Hill. Or you can simply just get the best view ever of your neighbour’s backyard!

Wow... that doesn't sound anything like Google Maps.

I wonder if 192 spent as much on the technology to develop this as they have on the advertising budget... ie, spamming other website's forums for free.

That's as disturbing as it is useless to me in my everyday life in London.


Lived in London since 2003, it's alright I suppose.

Great image they've used to showcase the technology... I mean, who doesn't like spying on pigeons?

I'm going to forward this exciting new application to Bill Oddie forthwith. Biggrin
