Item from Ian: Guess the city from its heat map

Quiz: can you identify the world cities from their running heatmaps?
I could be wrong, but I’m pretty sure I recognize number 1. (Incidentally, as a planning device, I think heat maps like this are used far too little … They show the desire lines for an entire city, and are a great source of data on how people want to use their city)
From The Guardian:
Heat 1
They’re not all that easy:
Glasgow, Gdansk or Gothenburg:
Heat 2
Ljubljana, Lanzhou or Liverpool:
Heat 3
Take the test here.
