So I have done this for Los Angeles and would like others to do their cities as well, all I want to compare is what you guys think your cities' contiguous developed area is and highlighted with this link:

I did LA's and I tried doing Seattle's but I would like someone who is very familiar with their city to highlight it as I don't want to start a debate of I left off too much or included too much.
