Development of a digital atlas to integrate and manage historical resources and enable analysis of historical data related to the colonization and settlement of early California.

European settlement in North America and the establishment of missions to Indians initiated dramatic demographic, environmental, religious, and social change. The Early California Cultural Atlas (ECCA) is a digital history project that seeks to further explore and illuminate these historical developments in colonial California between 1769 and 1850. The ECCA is an emerging interactive website that integrates and manages historical resources, enables analysis of data related to the colonization and settlement of California, displays research results in the form of maps and other visualizations, and educates students from elementary school to the university. This project draws upon the expertise of librarians, archivists, historians, anthropologists, geographers, software engineers, technical experts, California Indians, and primary school teachers.
