I have been playing with making night time maps of cities as seen from space for the last year. Its taken a while, but I'm finally happy with the results and would like any opinions and critiques.
They mirror the shots as taken by the astronauts from the ISS which i absolutely love, but when i wanted to print a poster of the London image i found that they were all too blurry or too small to look good...so i set about making my own.
The road information is Openstreetmap of course, and every road is in there. The prints look great for close up viewing up to 1mx1m and i am currently perfecting a technique involving 3d software (my profession is as a broadcast 3d animator and compositor) that will allow for much closer maps, with far higher detail.
Here is a link to some higher res images.
Thank you for looking and i welcome all crits and opinions...
