Early California Cultural Atlas - Overview

The Early California Cultural Atlas (ECCA) visualizes the transformations in California before 1850 by mapping the migration of Indians from their native villages to Franciscan missions, the immigration of soldiers and settlers to California from northern Mexico, the initiation and growth of domestic agriculture and animal husbandry at the missions, and the transfer of huge parcels of land from California Indians to private Spanish and Mexican landholders.

DC_Description Multiple types of data have been collected and integrated for two missions in the Monterey region and the Los Angeles Basin. Ultimately, ECCA aims to disrupt the certainty of traditional mapping techniques by embracing spatial ambiguities and adopting new methods of web-based visualizations.
DC_Description_History ECCA is in the early stages of development. So far, exploratory studies and interfaces have been constructed and can be explored on this website.
