* HappyCow has a list of veg*n restaurants
* It shouldn't be too hard to find the area of a country/province/state/etc.
* So, you could create a feature that allows you to see a list of countries/provinces/states, etc. sorted by veg*n restaurants/km^2.
I feel like this would not just be cool, but could help people who want to travel somewhere, but are not sure where. They can look at that list, and then see where has the most/least options per km^2.

Have you checked out this page?
Posted by 1998tkhri at 08/03/16 18:15:27Yeah, but how was that list calculated? Here's what I got for each item on that list, using HappyCow and Wikipedia as resources:
SO, Berlin's density is (396/891.7 = ) 0.444096 by area, or (396/3610156 = ) 0.000110 by population.
New York City (US-NY):
SO, NYC's density is (274/1214 = ) 0.225700 by area, or (274/8550405 = ) 0.000032 by population.
SO, Portland's density is (272/376 = ) 0.723404 by area or (272/583776 = ) 0.000466 by population.
San Francisco (US-CA):
SO, San Francisco's density is (150/600.6 = ) 0.249750 by area or (150/864816 = ) 0.000173 by population.
480 restaurants (including EC1, EC2, EC3, EC4, W1, WC1, WC2, and SW1)
SO, London's density is (480/1572 = ) 0.305344 by area or (480/8673713 = ) 0.000055 by population.
I could continue with the runner-ups, but I'll stop here for now... if this list was ranked by density by area, the order would be-
New York City
or, if it was by density by population is would be-
New York City
I feel like a page that does these kinds of calculations (I personally think that density by area makes the most sense) could be useful.
Posted by eric at 08/05/16 01:19:10Hi 1998tkhri -
Those were based on our internal survey, not density, but density makes sense. If you're up for calculating density on the list of "Cities with the Most Vegan Restaurants" I'd be happy to add the results. So like "Berlin density = 0.000110 by population"
Please email me directly if you have time for that. eric at happycow.
