Did you know that City Hall in London sports a superb new imagery graphic of London’s boroughs on its atrium floor? Open to the public, and home to the Greater London Authority (GLA) and the Mayor of London, Boris Johnson, the atrium floor is covered in our OS MasterMap Imagery Layer.
Displaying the latest Olympic Park imagery, flown in June this year, the graphic was put together by our Pre and Post Sales Support and Remote Sensing teams. They colour-balanced our imagery and created a huge seamless mosaic of vertical imagery in the GLA boundary.
We delivered the imagery to the GLA in mid-June, ready to be laid on the City Hall floor ahead of the opening of the 2012 Olympic Games. City Hall played a key role in hosting activities during the Games and was renamed London House for the duration. Our flooring was of great interest during the activities as people spotted famous landmarks and locations under their feet.
In October a number of our staff involved in the project accompanied our Director General, Vanessa Lawrence CB to City Hall to meet the Mayor Of London, Boris Johnson, and showcase our work.
