An area of urbanization can be made up of a number of communities that retain their separate identities as they grow together, in which case they form a conurbation. The resulting urbanized location might be referred to as a metropolitan area.

Metropolitan and its derivatives, megapolitan and micropolitan, suggest citizenry, culture, sophistication, organization, and complexity. In a word, urban is synonymous with city. Metropolitan means concerning a city and has urban as a synonym.
