Great quiz! Now I'll do it again (even though I got them all the first time) to see what new cities it throws up.

"Only cities with more than 1 million inhabitants urban area". Includes Antwerp, Nuremberg and Southampton, for instance, that are quite far from 1M. At least give your source!

After collecting the data - from citypopulation + wikipedia - I would say that "Urban Area" should be better specified to "Metro-Area", as all of the cities quoted in my previous comment reach 1M inhabitants only by considering the full Metro Area.

Nottingham has been put a bit too far north on this map. Shift it down a bit or call it Sheffield.

I've fixed the locations of the UK cities. They were only slightly out so I didn't notice it before :)

Good quiz. I sense a series! Just one question: is there any logic to the order of the answers to the right of the sphere or is that random as well?

They're random too! Sadly I can't control this anyway, as the randomised just picks 15 random cities in a random order

No comments about being too Parisian centric?
