US Largest Coastal CitiesDirections
First choose the number of cities by typing ‘100’, ‘250’, ‘500’, or ‘all’ – then try to achieve the highest population among the top US coastal cities you chose. For purposes of this quiz, coastal refers to cities whose coordinate I use is within a certain distance of a detailed US coastlines boundary shape. Cities must be within 20 miles for 500K+ pop, 15 for 150-500K, 10 for 100-150K, 7.5 for 50-100K, 5 for 25-50K, and 2.5 for <25K. Quiz is not timed.
obviously as with the world version, there is no way to precisely define what ‘coastal’ is, and i don’t have border coordinates for every us city, so i had to come up with criteria for being on this quiz, which is in the directions…no other way to really do it short of checking each city individually (which i’m not doing, sorry) 🙂
