You're right but some times people like start arguments like them and people agree and disagree. Or just premature people who wants to create these threads to fight ( not saying every thread).

Theyre not agglomerations, theyre two cities that have merged into one (not even divided by a river etc), and not defined by the city proper limits.

Technically La Defense is outside Paris in the same way, Miami and Miami Beach - I could go on. Tokyo-Yokohama would be the best example imo.

Osaka-Kobe-Kyoto, three cities that even share the same public transport network, for obvious reasons (in the same way Guangzhou-Dongguan-Shenzhen are now building/sharing their networks into one).

For Osaka-Kobe-Kyoto 3 cities mixed into one, but we usually use Osaka for a 3 names so if Guangzhou, Dongguan, and Shenzhen mixed into one what name are we going to use?

That's right, omit them all. It's just going to distort the data to include areas outside city limits.

Id hesitate at mixing the three up tbh (but if you were just call it the Pearl River City - not to be confused with the Pearl River Delta which is 9 cities). Guangzhou and Foshan are one city, Dongguan and Shenzhen another. The river that divides these two is built on both sides but in a bitty way, not truly contiguous (enough). Of course several geographers already regard this as one city and thus the second largest in the world (population 32 million), though personally Id wait a few maybe 2 more years.


Left to right

Foshan = blue
Guangzhou = red

Dongguan = pink
Shenzhen = purple

The differences. Note it's dense, not suburbia.

Foshan bottom side of river, Guangzhou top - no noticeable differentiation, quite dense - I would consider this the same city:





Guangzhou top of river, Dongguan bottom (arrow marking city centre) - there is differentiation, and several rivers dividing it all.
I wouldnt consider this one city unless the whole screen would be fully urban top to bottom. Too bitty for now.





Dongguan left side of river, Shenzhen right - no noticeable differentiation plus fully dense. Id consider this the same city.

yeah I guess most cities are separated by rivers but the river that crosses Dongguan and Guangzhou I think that's that Dong river or west river and most borders of Guangzhou and Foshan is divided by the Bei river or the north one

Poor little island. I guess Houston would dwarf it as well. It's 30% larger than Wales.

The UK isn't that small really, it's actually pretty big for a European Country

Well yes but compare to the world is kind of medium size. But the picture just shows that Tokyo has more population and if London was that size with the same amount of density in that area, I think London might have more population than Tokyo!
