The British Cartographic SocietyWINNERThe BCS Award 2015WINNERThe Stanfords Award for Printed Mapping 2015WINNERJohn C Bartholomew Award for Thematic Mapping 2015In London: The Information Capital, geographer James Cheshire and designer Oliver Uberti join forces to bring you a series of new maps and graphics charting life in London like never beforeWhen do police helicopters catch criminals? Which borough of London is the happiest? Is 'czesc' becoming a more common greeting than 'salaam'? James Cheshire and Oliver Uberti could tell you, but they'd rather show you. By combining millions of data points with stunning design, they investigate how flights stack over Heathrow, who lives longest, and where Londoners love to tweet. The result? One hundred portraits of an old city in a very new way.Dr James Cheshire is a geographer with a passion for London and its data. His award-winning maps draw from his research as a lecturer at University College London and have appeared in the Guardian and the Financial Times, as well as on his popular blog, mappinglondon.co.uk. He is a Fellow of the Royal Geographical Society. Oliver Uberti is a visual journalist, designer, and the recipient of many awards for his information graphics and art direction. From 2003 to 2012, he worked in the design department of National Geographic, most recently as Senior Design Editor. He has a design studio in Ann Arbor, Michigan.

MEDIA REVIEWS
The book is infinitely compelling, one you'll return to time and again, and full of 'wow, you have to see this' moments. It reinforces the notion that information really can be beautiful... * Londonist *
This is London as you've never seen it before * Independent *
You know how you've always wanted a coffee-table book that translates lots of complex social data about London into a series of gorgeously illustrated infographics? Well it's finally arrived. * Time Out *
Brilliantly compelling...The Information Capital is a tour de force in the modern use of graphics to make a point * London Evening Standard *
A monumental work... Its pages are to dip into, to linger over and to return to time and again. It's hard to imagine tiring of them. * Management Today *
You can only imagine and get a sense of how much research and data collection must have been behind this project. It is a fascinating dissection of London life as we know it * The London Magazine *
Fascinating * London Evening Standard *
A witty, well-written, well-designed view of the city, with enlightening and often surprising perspectives * New Scientist *
