It???s truly an honor to be included as one of the cities in the Urban Observatory.  I believe the program will help in educating global citizens on the patterns and impacts of our major urban landscapes.  The ability to compare the differences and commonality of urban environments will provoke new thoughts and ideas in the young bright minds of our future generations.

We are excited that we can contribute and will be working to complete many of the other data layers.  I was intrigued when comparing the Honolulu data to other major cities, and how our footprint is ???manini??? (small) compared to cities like New York, London, and Tokyo.   And I really enjoyed doing a Weather comparison between Honolulu and the others.

Let's explore the world together, and learn how our global Urban communities are spatially related.
