idk about the projections though. i see one site that says this and one that says that. lost interest. no sites coincide with eachother. so i guess whatever city has the most people/buildings is your opinion. thats all that matters i guess.

Isn't BosWash already about 40 million people (Boston-Manchester 7 million, NY 20 million, Philadelphia 6 million, Baltimore-Washington 7 million)? In 2050, it'll be the same?

4.)Calcutta (incl. howrah andkhulna in bangladesh) 47 million
5.)Dacca (incl barisal and agartal in mynamar) 47 million

All of these these two cities together make almost a 100 million people (larger then most countries in the world) and they are all bengali speaking and next to each other. That would make it the largest urban region in the world :eek2:

interesting aspec from you , chi boi ,samson are right when he said that actuell boswash is over 40 million ,and i believe the cities will merged in 2050 so we have an immense corridor from boston to washington DC with around 45 million (a supergigacity ;-) in my eyes) ,and the same can fall to LA when it is merged with las vegas bakersfield and san diego tijuana and when tijuana is sprawled out to the south and las vegas to the west along the interstate highway ,tijuana i think is prognosed to have a population of 6 million in 2050 and las vegas of 1,5 million in 2050 , so it will be happen a new mega corridor :runaway: it can be happen in 2050 :)

Beijing + Tianjing + Hebei province have close to 100 million.
But it cannot be a metropolitan area,because there are not enough population to form such a big one.

Toronto and the Golden Horseshoe is already at 7.5 million with out Buffalo. So by your figures the area will have declined by 2050.

"35.) toronto (incl hamilton , oshawa and buffalo in USA ) 8 mill."

Huh? Toronto + Hamilton + Niagara Canada + Niagara US + Buffalo has 7.5 million people today. You expect the area to grow by only 500,000 in the next 44 years?

Edit: Damn didn't see the other post.
