Can anyone tell me what the largest city in the world is by land not population.
I say it's London, but I have been otherwise been told it is Mexico City.
Can someone put me right.
From what I can gather London covers 625 sq miles (1620 sq km) and Mexico City covers 598 sq miles (1,550 sq km) which would make London larger than Mexico City.
I'm have no idea if that makes London the largest world-wide in area though.
I had thought it was Berlin. Perhaps i can find something online.
Well, a quick web search didn't turn up anything about land area--and this does not sufficiently interest me to spend hours digging it up. Interestingly, if one types "world's largest city" in a google search window, the first result is at 2004 thread here.
In land area I had thought it was Phoenix Az
Sitka in Alaska is largest in the USA, Bob.
so land mass is equal to ice mass? with all this mass we may find ourselves Catholic.
I dont attend mass(es). It's not very Catholic...
Largest City by Land Area - Mount Isa
Located 1829 km from Brisbane, 883 km from Townsville and 356 m above sea-level, Mount Isa proudly claims to be the largest city in the world; a fact born out by its accreditation in the Guinness Book of Records. The argument is that the city extends for 40 977 sq. km, and that the road from Mount Isa to Camooweal, a distance of 189 km, is the longest city road in the world
Sorry Texas, in the US Alaska wins again
Juneau is over 3000 square miles (7800 km^2).
the World's largest land area is....
Hello people! I am Jonard from Philippines...

GOOGLE.COM "DAVAO CITY"..THANKS!
Davao city is a little one. Check it again...
it is not davao
Yes, Davao is the biggest region in the world by its political division, but that doesn´t mean that is the biggest city, its population exceeds only the million inhabitants, and its metropolitan area doesn´t expand to 2,443.61 square kilometers
The largest city by land not population
I would have to agree with Mexico City being the largest city by land and not population.
I learned something today!
re:Worlds Largest City by land mass
why don't use google earth to have a glance at some height?
if u can locate the the city at a certain height but ther others, u can't , i guess that show the first one is bigger.
what u ya think?
pure personal, not scientific at all.
What about the world's smallest city, by landmass, not population?
World's smallest city. Fürstenau is located about 40 km south of Chur, in the southeastern canton of Graubünden, Switzerland.
Due to global warming, most of Alaska will melt in the not-too-distant future, so I count it out of the contest.
Who measures cities by area rather than population? That is a meaningless statistic. What makes a place a city is the people. You could, theoratically, hhave the world's largest city with a populations in the double digits. Would a 5,000 sq. km area with a population of 23 be counted as a city?
