Great! I think this would be a very good quiz with feature quality for our French section!

nice! can we have a proximity version? also, I think it would be nicer to have the 'external' islands more separated eg to the right of the map

Thanks, I can try! Originally I just had Reunion and Guadeloupe, but I realized last minute that Fort-de-France, Martinique was there, so it ended up crowded.

Cayenne is at #101 :) But the data is from 2013, so it may have to appear soon.

Hi, I'm pretty sure that Annecy should be here with around 125,000 population.

I thought that too but after checking there are only 53k people in Annecy, the rest is in the suburban towns.

En français on dit Dunkerque. Et tu devrais préciser St Denis et St Denis de la Reunion. ;)

Wow, there sure are a lot of big cities near Paris! Great quiz by the way.

Cheers! They are the reason why Paris's urban area population is so massive.

I would suggest also possibly making a quiz of the largest cities in France by urban area as well.

Also I forgot to mention that citypopulation.de just added urban agglomerations for France, so that will help you if you decide to do that.

Thanks for the notice. I will keep the city populations the same as their commune, as I'm not hugely fond of the urban agglomerations. I am happy to say that Wikipedia has some recent data, and that this quiz is going to be updated very soon :)

btw, I can't imagine how annoying it must've been to add the cities/maps for overseas territories :)

It was a little. Fortunately I was able to reuse a map I made a while ago for a French Departments quiz, and I only had to draw the territory of New Caledonia. Communes in overseas regions and territory is listed in my source, too, which simplifies things greatly :)
