Louisiana, one of the West South Central states of the United States, bounded on the north by Arkansas, on the east by Mississippi, on the south by the Gulf of Mexico, and on the west by Texas. The Mississippi River forms a portion of the eastern border, and the Sabine River forms much of the western border. Louisiana, with an area of 51,844 square miles, is the thirty-first largest state in the U.S. Of its area, 4.2% is federal property. The state is roughly L‑shaped, and its general dimensions are about 267 miles from north to south and about 286 miles from east to west. Elevations range from 8 feet below sea level at New Orleans to a maximum of only 535 feet at the summit of Driskill Mountain in the northern part of the state. The approximate mean elevation is 100 feet. Louisiana's coastline along the Gulf of Mexico is 400 miles long.

Shreveport is located in northwest Louisiana on the west bank of the Red River, some thirty miles south of Arkansas and fifteen miles east of Texas. A portion of the city is in the Red River bottomlands and the remainder in gently rolling hills that begin about one mile west of the river. Elevations in the Shreveport area range from about 170 to 280 feet above sea level. The average seasonal temperature is 47.5 degrees in winter and 83.7 degrees in summer. The major natural resources in the area are oil and gas, timber and various agricultural crops.

Shreveport is located 185 miles east of Dallas and 320 miles northwest of New Orleans. It is at the crossing point of several major highways. Interstate Highway Number Twenty (I-20) crosses through the center of the city; it connects with Dallas, Texas to the west and Jackson, Mississippi to the east. Louisiana State Highway Number One (LA 1) crosses I‑20 just south of downtown; it provides access to Texarkana, Texas to the north and, historically, to Alexandria and Baton Rouge, the state capital, to the south. Interstate Highway Number Forty-Nine (I-49) is now complete providing improved access to points south such as Alexandria and Lafayette. Shreveport is located in Caddo Parish and is the parish seat. The MSA Metropolitan Statistical Area includes Caddo, Bossier and Webster Parishes. The main population centers in those parishes are respectively Shreveport, Bossier City and Minden.
