The major cities of the world and their appearances in fiction. This page is based on the 2012 classifications and rankings of the [[http://www.lboro.ac.uk/gawc/ Globalization and World Cities Research Network (GaWC)]] think tank group from Loughborough University in England, the earliest group to attempt such a categorization from way back in 1998. Expect some of these to show up in a WorldTour. It should be noted, however, that the index has long been outdated and some changes have happened among the cities in the list, so for anybody who wants to know the details, this list is obsolete and [[https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Global_city you're better off searching]] TheOtherWiki.
