Night time city maps

Hi guys,

New to the forum, i hope this is OK to post here.

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 but if viewed from afar, then bigger is certainly possible. The only photographic image used in the posters is the earth glow in the orbit shots (I checked Nasa's T's and C's and i am allowed to use the image for commercial use..before anyone says anything)

Here is the Link. This is only a handful of images that i have done, i have another 50 cities in the works right now...

Nice, for a room decor. I think you could change the luminosity lit bit and some of them darker.

I love it!

Fantastic work! How does this work if no photos are taken? Did you produce them digitally?
