The largest is easy, but what about the smallest?

What criteria should we use to consider someplace a city or not?

good idea...

Germany:

Berlin, 3.500.000 inhabitants

(tripadvisor.de)

mighty Schnackenburg, 650 inhabitants

(wikipedia)

even smaller, also in terms of size: Arnis, 300 inhabitants, 0.45 square kilometres

(wikipedia)

both are administered as "cities"

Perhaps 1000 x 669 mgpxls would be a better option. Thank you!
wow! You want a photo 669 thousand megapixels in size???

if 1200x1024 pixels equals one megapixel
if at standart non wide screen, 669.000 megapixels would equal about 944.000x708.000 pixels...
if a monitor 19" is about 45cm wide

then, 699 megapixels, at a 19" monitor set to 1200x1024 resolution, would be 414 meters in diameter!!! :banana:

Taller Better, I will resize the photos, dont worry.


but for your info (and other people too), megapixels is a unit of area of an image. Mega = million. Its the total area, in pixels, of a photo. Thus, you never say 1000x669 megapixels. Its 1000 pixels x 669 pixels.

1000 pixels x 669 pixels equals a total of 669 thousand pixels. Its less than 1 megapixel. Its actually 0.6 megapixels.

640x480 = 307k pixels = 0.3 megapixels
800x600 = 480k pixels = 0.5 megapixels
1024x768 = 780k pixels = 0.8 megapixels
1200x1024 = 1220k pixels = 1.2 megapixels
1600x1200 = 1,920k pixels = 2 megapixels
etc
etc
etc

(notice that industry rounds up (sometimes down) the total number of pixels when telling how many megapixels a camera has)

Paris (12 million inhabitants):


Rochefourchat (1 inhabitant, down from 221 inhabitants at the 1806 census): If two of us SSC forumers moved to Rochefourchat, we could democratically topple the current mayor (the only inhabitant), take legally control of the municipality, and allow the construction of giant skyscrapers. :crazy:

is this really a municipality??? Why havent a larger authority (state/province/federal) took actions to subordinate this area again to some other municipality?
