Where the Animals Go
For thousands of years, tracking animals meant following footprints. Now satellites, drones, camera traps, cellphone networks, apps and accelerometers allow us to see the natural world like never before. Geographer James Cheshire and designer Oliver Uberti take you to the forefront of this animal-tracking revolution. Meet the scientists gathering wild data – from seals mapping the sea to baboons making decisions, from birds dodging tornadoes to jaguars taking selfies. Join the journeys of sharks, elephants, bumblebees, snowy owls and a wolf looking for love. Find an armchair, cancel your plans and go where the animals go.

What makes London the information capital?
Geographer James Cheshire and designer Oliver Uberti could tell you, but they’d rather show you. Combining data with stunning design, this book shows us the city as we’ve never seen it before – from who lives the longest to how flights stack over Heathrow, from ‘The Knowledge’ of a cabbie to the territories of London’s thirteen football tribes. The result? One hundred portraits of an old city in a very new way.
