When we speak of comparing Austin’s city limits, we’re talking about the roughly274 square miles of land that make up the city of Austin and how that area compares to similar cities’ square mileage.
Brian Shreckengast, a researcher at theSparefoot Blog, recently went about illustrating this graphically, putting Austin up against cities around the world, from San Antonio to Paris.
To do this, Shreckengast used a mapping software called MapFrappe to overlay Austin’s city outline on other city maps, while also accounting for slight adjustments that come with mercator projection distortions.
While not all the map illustrations will blow your mind, they do provide a neat new way think about the city of Austin.
First, Austin versus its neighbor just down the road, San Antonio:
Austin is also dwarfed by Houston, one of the largest cities in the U.S.
New York City is only 30 square miles larger than Austin, but is home to nearly ten times as many people.
Austin claims over 200 more square miles than San Francisco.
