The national definitions of cities proper, urban areas, urban settlements, built-up areas differ a lot among the countries. In case of some countries, oficially presented borders for cities proper are much smaller than real built-up areas and borders for urban areas much bigger. That's why I tried to do the quiz as comparable and accurate as possible and did a lot of research with the satellite images.

Level 58

- Where the official data for cities or urban settlements are acceptable and match with real built-up areas that data was used.

- Where the official data differ a lot from reality on the ground but there are available data for counting more realistic and more comparable figures, I did my own research with the satellite images.

- Where there are smaller cities, villages or settlements that are unquestionably part of the built-up area of ​​a bigger city their figures were added to it.

- Where there are more big cities of similar size that unquestionably creates one continuos built-up area, they were grouped together and you can guess the correct answer by typing name of any of them.

You can argue with me here and there but overall it should be really precise and comparable. I spent huge amount of time on this quiz to make it really as precise and comparable among so many countries as possible.

How come Valletta didn't make it? According to WP its urban area is 355,000 and its metro area 393.938.

Level 58
Oct 24, 2020
Well, Malta is quite a problematic case. As you could notice, I'm not using metro/urban area figures. The problem is that in Malta, there are really small towns (officially called Local Councils) but a lot of them create several continuous built-up areas. The population of Valletta is only 5,827. That is also reason why you usually don't find any Maltese city in quizzes here. But I didn't like this fact since these local councils actually create quite big functional continuos built-up area. The biggest local council in the biggest built-up area is Birkirkara (with 24k inhabitants). It was not easy to decide where to make a border of this built-up area, but mostly it copies the Northern Harbour District. That is why you can find in my quiz Birkirkara (Northern Harbour) - both names are accepted. The truth is that some councils (including Valletta) of Southern Harbour district could be added to this built-up area...Then it might be possible to call this area Valletta (cause it's capital)

There's a dot in an Island in the Atlantic, presumably the Azores. I spent time trying to spell it. Was it Punta Delgada? Porto Delgada? Puerto Delgada? But it turned out it wasn't in the quiz anyway.

Nope, it's Funchal at the island of Madeira (Portugal).

Or if you mean those islands in the rectangle (which represents that it is further in the direction of line) those are acutally Lesser Antilles and the city is Fort-de-France at the island of Martinique (France).

Both of them are in the quiz.

There are several weird inconsistencies here, like why for example is the Madrid area segregated in various towns and Milan and Monza, for example, are considered as one? Lower Silesia is chopped up into many cities, but *some* cities in the Ruhr basin counts as one.

why does it show Duisburg with only 184 thousand people? It has i population of nearly 500 thousand.
