Top 25 cities in the world by the number of POI almost 6 years ago

I was expecting them to be bigger, so we can also have the airports and other POI that are near a city, but not with that much.

I will try to find the time after work to find a list with the most important cities from around the world, in a shapefile

Top 25 cities in the world by the number of POI almost 6 years ago

First of all Thank you very much !!! I did not know that you count in the search without displaying, i love overpass-turbo but i hated the fact that the browser was the bottleneck. this it`s a useful information.

I had a predefined list with around 1200 cities, having the bbox of them, from where i had created the polygons. I got the bbox from a predefined list, , there is a square cut for each of the cities. there is the possibility when we have 2 or more towns close each close to each other, to count a POI that is in the other city.
A shapefile approach with the city limits would yield more real results, have to see what version could i approach to get the shapefile without spending to much time searching for it. ( My task with the POI it`s done, but for the future, i would like to have a more precise method of measuring.

for Essen the polygon it`s “

POLYGON((6.74042 51.2949,6.74042 51.6291,7.27687 51.6291,7.27687 51.2949,6.74042 51.2949))”

For Dortmund the polygon is :

“POLYGON((7.21538 51.3368,7.21538 51.6708,7.75182 51.6708,7.75182 51.3368,7.21538 51.3368))”
