A-Z street atlases and street maps of London from the Geographers' A-Z Map Company produced in a variety of formats and sizes, from large atlases to small pocket maps. The titles use the same basic cartography, enlarged or reduced according to the requirements of each version, so the print size of street names and other named features will vary according to the map scale.
In street atlases the mapping show A and B roads with route numbers, indicating as appropriate selected house number of easier identification of addresses. One way streets are marked and on A road, where useful, traffic flow direction. Colouring also indicates pedestrianized or restricted access streets and the maps show Congestion Charging Zone boundary, selected car parks, park & ride facilities and locations of speed cameras. In addition of railway and London Transport stations, the maps also show tramlink routes with stops, and river bus stops. Colouring indicates various types of buildings: places of interest, shopping centres and markets, leisure facilities, medical centres, etc. Also marked are public toilets, indicating facilities of disabled users.
Unless indicated to the contrary, the index shows districts and various facilities or places of interest in colour to make them easy to see., with separate listings of hospitals/healthcare facilities and railway/underground/etc, stations. All versions all include a diagram of London Transport’s Underground/Overground/DLR network. Stanford’s presentation of the individual atlases includes an image showing the extent of the coverage.
Street maps adapt the basic cartography to present various aspects of capital. For
publication dates and other special features of each title please see the individual description.
PLEASE NOTE: titles still available in the now discontinued coverage of London in 9 sheets are listed on our website separately in two series: folded versions or wall maps.
