The GaWC city classification for 2018 is based upon the magnitude of a city’s business service connections to 707 other major cities. In total this includes over 177 million measures of connections between pairs of cities. GaWC city link classes are derived from the largest 1741 of these pairs of cities e.g. the link between London and New York, often referred to as NYLON, has the largest magnitude of inter-city connections and is denoted alpha ++.

This exercise emphasizes the fact that GaWC analyses are based upon myriad relations between cities unlike other classifications largely based upon attributes  of each city considered separately.
