Have you ever asked yourself what are the TOP 25 cities in the world, based on the number of POI in OpenStreetMap ?
To my surprise, the number 1 city is not a European one, but a city in Japan, that have 121.154 POI
I have calculated all the poi from the following category’s : amenity, leisure, shop, sport, tourism, man_made, office
I did not include the historic POI, because when i filtered the world planet, i had extracted the history tag, instead of historic
I had converter the ways into polygons, and then combined the 2 data-sets into one.
Then i had counted, based on the bbox of the city, the number of POI in each of the cities. I will give here the TOP 25 cities by the number of POI
Waiting for your opinions, comments, etc
