The Bomb Sight Android app is now available to download for free through the Google Play store.
The app gives you access to the interactive map of the aggregate bomb census, showing bombs that fell between 7th October 1940 and 6th June 1941.
If you’re in London, you can also explore the bomb locations using augmented reality technology, overlaying the bomb locations on top of the modern landscape around you. This provides an innovative way to explore information which was previously only accessible to researchers visiting the National Archives at Kew.
