This picture can clearly show the Relative Location of Austin is in the Heart of Central Texas. The Capital is used to represent Austin, as is the Alamo to represent San Antonio, as well as the Space Center to represent Houston.
This picture can show you a basic regional division of our Country, where Austin is located in the South region of NCAA Cross Country. This map can also be used to describe location due to that fact that these regions take up a large amount of space, but can relatively locate an area on a map of the United States.
Now with this picture, you can tell that Austin has a river running through it which we actually call Town Lake. You can also tell that Austin has a very-moderate sized Metro area, with lots of dry grassland and rolling hills surrounding it, Austin looks just like any other typical town.
With Austin being known as, "The Live Music Capital of the World", people from all over the world come over to experience the magnitude of musical influence in Austin. Many foreigners decide to live here after seeing it, causing them to bring their culture with them. That is why Austin is "Keeping it Weird", because it truly is one of the most diverse Cities you will ever visit.
Due to our fast growing population, Austin is forced to build new roads and buildings, in place of Animal Habitats, in which to keep up with the High Demand for Residential and Commercial growth. This can clearly show that Humans are not only interacting with the Enviroment of Austin, they are destroying it.
