Multi-layered CGI composites of ISS photos,and geodata created by London-based fine artist Marc Khachfe, who explainz:

…I was blown away by the nighttime images taken of cities at night by the astronauts on the ISS (international space station) and wanted to print out a large poster of the london one for my office, but I found them too blurry and too small to look good good printed out large format.

The images above (London, Paris, San Francisco and Montreal) while geographically accurate, are augmented interpretations.

For between €44 and €145, he’ll composite the city of your choice and supply prints up to 1m².

We would choose Manorhamilton.
