LONDON: Pakistani cities are considered to be compact despite being high density, with almost each of them known for one thing or another. With an aim to appreciate the urban form, street patterns, and geographical features of the nation's compact localities, the densest areas per one square kilometre — in nine major cities — have been highlighted here. The metropolises' tightly-packed neighbourhoods have been selected using data from Global Human Settlement Layer (GHSL), a novel European research project that computes residential densities across the globe using satellite images and international census estimates. My work has been inspired by a recent study by a British university professor who used the same data to pinpoint Europe’s most densely-packed locations and bring to the limelight the beauty of the continent's cities — as seen from the sky.
