Shanghai appears so sad in those photos
Too gray , too big , too much buildings wich look like each others , I'm not viewing density , I'm viewing buildings separated by lowrise and repetitive houses !

I've seem 15,000 but it was just a number some one pulled out of a hat. It could very well be that high, but it's largely meaningless without documentation.

Does Chinese cities only count 100m+, other cities count 35m+

In what way? I see Hong Kong and Shanghai as being more BLADE RUNNER-ESQUE!

Any high-altitude aerial of Shanghai will tell you that list is wrong!

It's more accurate to say that the Chinese entries are wrong. It was clearly cited as such when it was posted.

It was clearly indicated that Chinese cities were predictably not up to date. One country can't publish accurate data, so we can't look at how cities in the other 199 countries stack up? That's ridiculous.

No, they don't bother producing reliable public data so we're forced to use data tables that represent the other ~199 countries in the world. It's best to view these as World Data Tables excluding China.

That pic of Buenos Aires is Ammmmmazing. And I agree that downtown Chicago is larger and more dense than Toronto's.

wow at Buenos Aires!
Happy to have been introduced to its aerial picture. I was pleasantly surprised.
It's even more massive than other top skylines. (if you will not look at height)


Shanghai's low rises doesn't help with the illusion of being "dense".. makes it look like the high rises are spread out and not compact..
