5 Themes of Austin

Location

I chose this image to show Austin's location because it does just that, literally. This map shows both absolutely where Austin is in the state in Texas and that it's relatively north of San Antonio. Location is important in our day to day lives because we use it all the time. Imagine having to pull out a map everyday just to gt to school, talk about annoying!

Place

Here in Austin, everybody is considered to be "green". In fact, the entire city is environmentally friendly, they even urge us to recycle by giving us the proper bins that they then come by and pick up.

Region

I used this image of our capital building because it shows how different Austin is from everywhere else. Does any other city in Texas have one? Is there a larger one anywhere else in the country other than Washington D.C.? The answer to both questions is no, and that's because Austin is unique.

Movement

There is so much musical movement in Austin! We are considered to be the live music capital of the world, so many artists come here to be discovered. On the flip side, we get many tourists that come just to listen to the music. On top of that, we have everyone in the music industry that works behind the scenes such as sound engineers that come here for work.

Humans

We humans sometimes need to change the environment to suit our needs. This image shows our handiwork. We once had a flood, but we then evolved the environment to ensure that never happened again.
