What year are these Statics from?

Inaccurate at all. Tried a few locations in the Middle East and results were way off.

Useless tool. Inaccurate population numbers and tools don't work. good idea, horrible execution.

Hi,This program works very hectic and uncertain. 1st problem: how can I mark certain area? The two incon above does not work. 2nd problem: in case of direct input sometimes I get the shaded area and the calculation run well. Then other time if I enter new range,I don't get a new shaded area, and the calculation not runing. In certain circumtances for range 800Km I get less population than for 700 Km! How possible this ? Good idea , but not excellent development! Regards,Joe

Very poorly done. I realize it's "Free Map Tools," but you have done much better. Seems to be more of a guess loosely based on local statistics rather than anything resembling reality.

Incredibly inaccurate. Shows less than a seventh of my town's population!

worst and misleading software. dont change the dimenions and you will find same population across all region.

I am thankful to the developers of this platform.But I sorry the results are not accurate at all. How can a municipal capital like Dunkwa-On-Offin in Central Region,Ghana have the same population as that of Accra

What is the source of data for the U.S. and what year is it?
By Roger on 6th June 2016

Why is it so slow???
On 3rd June 2016

This is fantastic! Exactly what I was looking for.

I am trying to do population growth projections for a certain area and am curious how recent your data is. Like year?

Dhaka Cantonement: 53,035,100 Dongguan Science and Technology Museum (Guangzhou): 51,247,200 Kalyani (Kolkatta): 49,002,110 Tokyo Tokyo Dome: 39,526,090 Shnaghai Nong Shan Yin Hang: 28,269,080 Mexico City Palacio des Bellas Artes: 26,475,060 Sao PAulo Se Metro: 25,759,050 Ulhasnagar Station (Mumbai): 25,389,010 Osaka Umeda Station: 21,407,210 New York Time's Square: 20,610,000 London Royal Stock Exchange: 18,260,700 Wuppertal Hauptbahnhof (Ruhr): 17,239,280 Los Angeles Grand Park: 16,267,700 Utrecht Central Station (NL): 13,327,080 Paris Ile de la Cite: 13,114,050 Walnut Creek BART (San Francisco): 8,949,951 Sydney Circular Quay: 4,587,541 A few areas I compared. I think the Guangzhou region with Shenzhen, Hong Kong, and Macau has the makings of being the true number one world metropolis. I suppose China should give up its special administrative regions to just allow passport free travel throughout the entire area. Dhaka is truly incredible too.

A very great tool. Surely it needs to be updated periodically. In so far as it works, the biggest city in the world should be Dhaka with about 53 million within 100 km. If one uses a uniform measurement, say 100 km radius, it's interesting to compare cities. Amazing that Los Angeles has such poor transportation infrastructure, considering it is indeed a significant metropolitan area on a global scale.
