If The World Lived in a Single City..

These data speak more directly about how we use land for cities, and by inference, something about their livability and quality of life. Obviously “Houston” takes up a lot more good farmland than “Paris,” and the real Paris (world rank: 34th with the highest population density) is a city that people love for its beauty, cultural treasures, walkability, charm and public transportation.

Anyhow, I would love to see Manila, Delhi, Hong Kong or Taipei on the map. I wonder how many states will be covered if the world’s 6.9 billion people lived as dense as Manila, Delhi, Hong Kong or Taipei!
