Urban Observatory
The focus of the Urban Observatory is on the people who live in cities, the work they do there, the movement made possible through transportation networks, the public facilities needed to run the city, and the natural systems which are impacted by the city's footprint. If you are a city with datasets in any of these categories, we urge you to contribute it to the project. See the Participation Guide<http://www.urbanobservatory.org/pdfs/uo_participation-guide.pdf> [PDF] for more information.
