If urban agglomeration data is available that data was used
If only urban area data is available, nearby smaller urban areas were added to the total. Areas up to 20km from the center are considered if there is built-up area between them.
If only city proper data is available, any adjacent or connected communes were added to the total
And maybe even have them alphabetically? instead of ordered by size? Because the size doesnt really help for anything, besides if you miss something in the top 10.
Breda/Tilburg has its own wikipedia page, so it can definitely be considered a single urban region.
Breda and Tilburg are never, never, never ever considered as one urban area.
Rotterdam the hague is similarly weird imo. It won;t be long or we 'll be a city state too I guess, haha, one big municipality (or atleast all besides the provinces groningen, friesland, drenthe)
My knowledge of russian cities finally coming into play.
The highest I missed was Naples and Zurich. The lowest guessed I did have was Groningen and the lowest inhabitants I guessed was Swansea ( Started thinking about football (or whatever sport they are from) but didnt help me much haha, could only think of swansea, manchester and milan hahaha) You can tell I am not a sportsperson..
Trust me, I live there - tell anyone Düsseldorf and the Ruhr belong together, and they'll beat the hell out of you...
In the Netherlands the biggest places are, in order: Amsterdam, Rotterdam, Den Haag, Utrecht, Eindhoven, Tilburg, Groningen, Almere, Breda, Nijmegen, we do not consider any of those places the same. It's like saying Liverpool and Manchester are the same place, which they obviously aren't.
For those who do not know the area the city has a neat boundary created by the M27 motorway - everything inside the boundary is in Southampton, everything else is in the towns of Eastleigh, Fareham, Gosport, Totton et al - all significant settlements in their own right who certainly do not consider themselves as part of Southampton. The real population of Southampton is about 270,000, which equates to the unitary population.
If I work It hard I can have like 170 or so but I'm not good enough to do It 100%, I'm pretty sure. I needed like 12-13 tries to get the 100 cities done correctly...
