Random Cities on a World Map

Can you guess these random cities on world map? The answers change every time you play!
Each dot represents one of the world's 250 most-populated urban areas according to citypopulation.de, January 2019
Dot size depends on population
Thanks to user scambigol and his All 1M Cities by Proximity quiz. It made making this quiz a lot easier.

"Dot size depends on population" Not as far as I can tell.

Should be fixed. Problem was on the SVG, Yangon was capitalized, but wasn't capitalized on JetPunk so JetPunk thought they were completely different answers

I'd love an expurgated version of this quiz that removed anything below the line of the 10th or so biggest city in each country, even if it qualifies as 1M+ population. Because that 1M cutoff line includes a LOT of cities in China and India that I'm never going to know.

DC doesn't work, so I tried Baltimore and Philadelphia, even NYC thinking the dot was misplaced or something.

What's marked as 'Hyderabad' could be Karachi, but certainly isn't Hyderabad.

Hyderabad is slightly northeast of Karachi (and the dot for it is smaller too). If you were to zoom in, you would see Karachi is right on the coast and Hyderabad is a little northeast of Karachi and not on the coast.

Yeah usually quizzes that include the Ruhr state that it could be an option. This one should too

I'll give you some of those but I'm familiar with Belo Horizonte, Kunming and Kano from that list thanks to other quizzes on this site.

I just got Jiangyin. After I typed in Shanghai, Nantong, Suzhou, Nanjing, Hangzhou and even Hefei I gave up. It's generally a good quiz, but if a relatively minor city is surrounded by many bigger ones it becomes a matter of luck.

This quiz is an excellent idea, but it becomes quite frustrating when a dot's placement on the map could be multiple possible answers, such as the Beijing/Tianjin/Shijiazhuang area, Okayama/Osaka/Nagoya, Taipei/Taichung or pretty much all of Belgium/Netherlands/Western Germany. You just end up typing random metro areas (all of which could qualify) until you happen to guess the correct one. Overall, it's still fun, but I think making all the dots smaller (and the same size) might help us see where they're located a bit more precisely.

This is one of my favourite quizzes, but I had a similar problem. Would it be possible to accept Dusseldorf, etc. for The Ruhr, as it is in most geography quizzes on the site?
