Source: Boundaries and population of the urban agglomerations are computed by »City Population« using population figures in a 100m grid provided by the Statistisches Bundesamt Deutschland (web) and using geospatial data of the Bundesamt für Kartographie und Geodäsie (web).

Explanation: The urban agglomeration are delimited by unsettled and not built-up areas. Because of the computation method, the above population figures are not exact and therefore rounded. Area figures are derived from geospatial data.
