A skyline is best described as the overall or partial view or relief of a city’s tall buildings and structures. It can also be described as the artificial horizon that a city's overall structure creates. Skylines are a good representation of a city’s overall power; the more prominent the skyline, the more money the city has to spend. Skylines also serve as a kind of fingerprint of a city, as no two skylines are alike. Skylines that are stretched out to a large (sometimes panoramic) view because of large cities or twin cities are called cityscapes. Skyscrapers play a large role in defining a city's skyline.
