Below are demographic maps of three West Coast US cities:

San Francisco City Density Map

Seattle City Density Map (2010)

Portland Metropolitan Area (including city) Density Map

These population density maps tell a story that is consistent with the overall CDP population density figures of each of these figures, but reveal much more than one figure can describe. Here are the overall population densities based on 2016 population estimates:

City Density (/mi2) Population Land Area (mi2)
San Francisco 18,451.37 864,816 46.87
Seattle 8,160.85 684,451 83.87
Portland 4,754.20 632,309 133.00
