So take a few minutes to stop the tour at each city and explore.



(Tour tips: To slow or speed it up goto "Tools" then down to "Options" then click the "control' tab. Here you can control tour pause and by checking advanced you can control speed also.)

Before most of us have been able to detect it, what we have been calling a city has already changed. I’m not referring to the medieval walled city, which has been long dead.

I’m discussing the modern or contemporary city, which has culturally, politically, and physically metamorphosed beyond previous standards for recognition.
To some, this transformation has warranted the creation of new terms. In the past, the word metropolis was used to describe the extended twentieth century gridiron, which bristled with skyscrapers. Today the term megalopolis is used to describe the bewildering sprawl of mass transit systems, technology parks, entertainment complexes, strip malls, and bedroom communities which extend from older city edges, annihilating previous physical distinctions between city and hinterland, as well as previous geopolitical boundaries.

To the majority, however, the elusive word city still suffices to describe any settlement of particular size and socio-economic significance. The irony is that what we call a city is no longer inherently urban, or suburban, or even exurban. It is all these things and more. We would perhaps do better to describe the countryside, like the goatherd in Calvino’s Cecilia4, or whatever is antithetical to the city.

In any case, what we must realize is that our old definition of city has been modified to address new forms of human development.

Good idea, but I wonder how to do it so that it does not result in double pinpoints?

Re: Are you a true Earth Browser???? XzOrzeist 7/21/05 12:22 AM
It would be nice if there was descent resolution imagery of all these cities, I looked at a the list and of the 8 cities in my country, there 3 with partial coverage and another 5 with no good coverage what so ever, I know it sounds like I'm having a rant but I think anyone here on the bbs and anyone else using GE would love to see good imagery of that entire list of cities..... Yes, I'm hinting...

Wouldnt it be nice if we could have all those cities at good resolution with the next database upgrade?

Re: Are you a true Earth Browser???? Infratex 7/21/05 3:44 AM
Wondering where you got this list. I live in Manila and rather than the 1.5M people indicated on the list, the population here at present is closer to 12M. Several of the other figures listed are way off the mark also. FYI
Re: Are you a true Earth Browser???? goofa 7/21/05 3:49 AM
I live in the north east of England and there are no good imagery north of manchester which over 100 mile south of me.

We has loads of good historical monuments and castles up here and cannot see any of them, even Newcastle United FC is poor image

Hi Infratex

I know the list will never be exact as city Pop. figures vary from source to source, but I had to start somewhere.

Metropolitan Area of Manila is Est 17million, so you are right but my list is just the cities not the metropolitan areas
(Which would be a different list!)

Nice list, but what about some placemarks?

The list seems to be wrong when it comes to size of the cities.

You can find a different version of the truth here.

Yea that's true, I mean, from what I can tell there is probably imagery for about 3 - 6 million (max) citizens of South Africa where as there are about 45 million citizens in the country at this very moment and probably another 10 million people from other countries…. Not to mention the country capitals around the world that you can't see... I'd say yes, there's definitely a huge market potential there...

I mean what did you do the first time you checked out GE? I know what I did...... "woooo this is cool, where's my house!?" Then after that I was lucky enough to say the following... "Ah there it is! Hey guys come check this out, I found my house!"

Pity that out of all the people on my floor at the office, there was not a single other person to experience the same joy.

I'd say it's much easier for someone to start using and liking a product if theres something they can relate to in its packaging... There nothing better than a product that makes you feel right at home (or on top of it lol!)

Population of the city of Madrid proper was 3,093,000 (Madrilenes, madrileños) as of 2003 estimates. Population of the urban area was 4,791,000 as of 2000 estimates. Population of the metropolitan area (urban area plus satellite towns) was 5,604,000 as of 2003 estimates.

Impossible to get current up to date Pop. data on all those cities, as various sources all have different numbers.

So about 3 million is close enough for my purposes.

ok. but the only valid of the results is the official data of the spanish governement and it's the data of the official statistics institute (INE) who realize the census of population ever 10 years. the last census in spain is dated 2004/01/01 and is released in 2003.

If you want the only valid source for spanish population data. please visit de INE site at www.ine.es
Re: World Tour, 90 major Cities elparto 8/1/05 4:27 AM
Let me tell you that the data you have is accurate, but wrong... Buenos Aires has the population you say in one district, but if you add all the others, it's much more. The same with many other cities, it depends really on how the politicians divided the area...
Correction to Quezon City, Philippines arismd 8/10/05 10:55 AM
Quezon City, Philippines is presently pointing to Quezon Province which is far north from and different from Quezon City which is in the National Capital Region (NCR). A search of Quezon City, Philippines, however, will point to the correct place. I guess searching using only "Quezon" without the word "City" will point to the province instead of the city in the NCR.

"Don't worry about the world coming to an end today. It's already tomorrow in Australia." -- Charles Schulz

Australia’s cities score highest points in Economist Global Survey

In its annual global survey rating the world’s best cities, the Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU) has ranked five of Australia’s state capital cities in the top ten. Melbourne, Perth, Adelaide, Brisbane and Sydney all scored high points in the survey, which rates 130 of the world’s largest cities.

The survey – regarded by many as the benchmark in city rankings – uses a rating system of one to five points in twelve categories where scoring one point would mean ‘no hardship’ in a given category. The categories include housing, education, recreational activities, health, climate and terrorism. The survey aims to determine which cities are the best for expatriates to live in.

Melbourne ranked number one in the survey as it received the top rating possible in every category. Perth came in fourth with Adelaide, Brisbane and Sydney all sharing the sixth place.

Re: World Tour, 100 Major Cities jeffryv 9/1/05 4:55 PM
Hi enouch

That is why I have also divided the tour into 10 subtours of ten cities each, which will help out those members with slower computers or slower internet connections.

Thank you for downloading, I have sure learnt alot doing this.
Re: World Tour, 100 Major Cities jeffryv 9/3/05 10:39 PM
Hi All

If anyone has a placemark/overlays collection for any of the cities in the first 100 cities, feel free to post them here and I can add a link to it.

This will help the overall learning experience.


Thank you
Re: World Tour, 100 Major Cities Frank4 9/9/05 6:03 AM
This is really good work jeffryv! Keep it up. I'm writing a story about this on my blog.

You should consider providing a link in each city's placemark to the Wikipedia (www.wikipedia.org) information for that city (if it exists, which I think a lot of them do).

how to go to mangalore
Re: World Tour, 100 Major Cities jeffryv 10/21/05 6:28 PM
Hi Groupz2000

In Google Earth it is labelled as Mangaluru, which makes it very tough to search for.

The above placemark will take you to Mangalore

( The error has been reported to Google Earth. )

Mangaluru was the earlier name of Mangalore in Karnataka. The city got its name from the Mangaladevi Temple. Mangaluru is a Sanskrit term literally meaning ‘auspicious place’, where 'Mangala' meaning auspicious and 'Uuru' meaning place. The Portuguese corrupted the name to its present form.

Re: World Tour, 100 Major Cities AshokTripathiPune 11/25/05 8:07 AM
The name "Lakhnau" is correct - phoneticaly. But the real name is "Lucknow". It is pronounced as "Lakhnau". It is the city of "Nawabs"-the former kings of the state of "Awadh" or "Oudh" as both the name is used by history writers. It is culturally very rich city with excellent places to travel and have a looksee. The culinary delights of the city are famous all over the world. It is famous for both vegetarian and non-vegetarian delightful food. The city is famous for its "Lakhnavi Tahzeeb" or the way traditional Lucknow person interacts with other people in words and demeanor. The city is also famous for its traditional "chikan" cloth. It is a very thin cotton made in a special way so that it is very light and comfortable to wear.

i will tell some more about Lucknow some other time.

How do I show Cities? Somehow it is disabled. OahuTraveler 12/3/05 12:44 AM
Dear Google Community,
I am fairly new, two weeks now; somehow my earlier experience is not what is happening now. At the start I could see the names of cities. Now all I can enable is state capitals. My question is very simple, how do I change a setting so that city names show?

Thank you for helping with this very basic question.
OahuTraveler
Re: How do I show Cities? Somehow it is disabled. tekgergedan 12/3/05 3:45 AM
As you zoom onto the earth, you will see them (use your track on your mouse). It is natural that we see first the country names, then their capitals first and later the other cities, towns, districts, etc by order.
_________________________
Re: How do I show Cities? Somehow it is disabled. OahuTraveler 12/3/05 4:05 AM
Hello, to Turkey, Thanks!

Thank you so much for a human response; this Google Earth -- assisted by computer data management -- is quite an experience.

Maybe I was looking at different parts of the world and the USA; one I recall looking at is Denver.

I think that in my earlier experiences I could see more city names. I saw lots of suburbs around Denver the first time I visited it. A few days later I went back and could not see the names and had trouble navigating because I could not tell where I was on a fairly close view. Maybe city name display is affected by height. Just now I went back to the Denver area and I can see the names that I think were not available before.

I am being more careful to let the view load 100 percent now, maybe that was the problem.

I was hoping there was a simple button to click on or off: Show Cities.

Note: I just looked near Kalamazoo, Michigan, for two cities, Otsego and Plainwell. Their boundaries show up but not the names. Even as I carefully raise or lower viewing elevation. This does not seem right. If I can't see those city names that I have visited, how can I expect to see other city names that I don't know exist as I zoom around the USA and see the sights?

Are you sure there is no Show Cities or equivalent setting?

Thank you so much for this introduction to the Google Earth community. It is so good to have a person respond to my question. I am telling my friends about Google Earth.

You know, everything cannot fit into the screen. Therefore, as you realized, it is something with your altitude. As you near the earth, you'll see the sub divisions and, lastly, our placemarks.

There are two more ways (besides the "Populated Places" layer as your on-off button):
1. Check the "Borders": so you can also see the borders of each sub district and find any that you are looking for.
2. You can click on "Fly To" button on the very topleft corner, type the name of the city and press ENTER. But before that, you have to locate your globe so as the region where you expect the city you are looking for faces with you. You will find lots of pins for Otsego and Plainwell.

You know I wonder who named it Mangaluru at Google Earth. Now of course there is an announcement by the Government of Karnataka that Mangalore along with several other cities will have their names changed to reflect their Kannada names.

Unfortunately, you can't change this. This is the only imagery for this area available through Google Earth. You will have to wait for this area to become high-resolution (updates are approximately every month or so).

Hi! You're placemark for Quezon City, Philippines is still a bit off--too far north. Quezon is right beside Manila, the capital. Actually, schadow1's got a placemark on the Quezon Memorial Circle (http://bbs.keyhole.com/ubb/showthreaded.php/Number/68439).

I tried this but it appears to crash GE Plus!

The first time it froze as soon as it was loaded and GE had to be forcibly closed. (Unfortunately I had made many changes in My Places, and all of these were therefore lost. I have now vowed to Save As frequently!)

On the second occasion I managed to visit Moscow OK, but on clicking Lima, Peru the hour glass froze and GE again had to be forcibly closed.
