There’s no doubt, Austin is one of Texas’ largest — and fastest growing — cities. Austin was recently named the most rapidly growing large city within the United States, and has seen a population increase of more than 20% in the last 10 years.

The Silicon Hills — a nod to Northern California’s Silicon Valley — is home to a cluster of innovative technology companies, transforming the way the world works. From Apple to Adobe, and Tesla to Oracle, take a peek into the changing landscape of Austin, Texas, as captured by Nearmap since 2014.
