Urban story: Lisbon is on a par with Honolulu

Urban story: Lisbon is on a par with Honolulu

Among 25 of the world's most important cities are visualised here. Each metropolis has been grouped vertically by 5 main temperature zones according to their latitude; and ordered horizontally according to their longitude. Each city identity is visually represented in a multiform polygon correlating to its size in sq m, number of inhabitants, number of tourists per year, height of the tallest building, and the average price of property according to real estate parameters (square metres). Further information is provided for each city "id-card": age of the city, average temperature and rainfall.
We discover that latitude and longitude parameters not only determine environmental factors but also several urban characteristics. Surprisingly Lisbon and Honolulu have a lot in common!
