Nice work, I thought Mexico City was larger. Los Angeles looks enormous. Hong Kong is to small.

Pretty cool, but is this really accurate? Hong Kong is larger than New Orleans in real life, but not on your picture...

NY seems to be missing parts of NJ and Conn. Once again this shows how much sprawl affects cities around the world.

Lots of Sydney is missing. Large parts of the south-west, almost the entire north, lots of the west and also the northwest is missing.

No. LA use to be the largest in the US (and world). But other cities have expanded since then. I think somewhere in Arkansas is the largest. And possibly Atlanta or Phoenix.
