The circles represent cities in East Asia. Each circle has a different meaning.
Land circles represent the Area of a city. The size represents
the Urban Land of that city. Filled circles represent persons. The sizes represent the Population.
White circles represent Urban Density. The sizes represent the area of each city,
the whiter they are, the more persons per sq km they have. Circles are ranked by Area, Population, and Density.
The highest value of each is on top.

The sudden urbanization of East Asia is one of the most complex global phenomena of our generation,
with vast economic, political and environmental implications. The World Bank has mapped urbanization across the
East Asia and Pacific region using satellite imagery, in which includes data on all 869 urban areas in the region
with populations over 100,000 persons.This visualization aims to summarize the changes in the region between
the year 2000 and 2010.
This project has been a submission for Visualizing.org's
"Visualizing Urban Expansion" Challenge.
The Data was provided by the World Bank.
