This discusses presents and explores a seventeenth century colonial landscape of the island of St. Croix, U.S. Virgin Islands. It identifies the potential for the presence of an archaeological record of the French colonial rule of the island, which can be initially identified through the development of a historical geographic information system (GIS) that ties together landscape features, modern geography, satellite and aerial imagery, historical maps and other archival records, and archaeological data. This GIS will assist researchers in understanding the movements and interactions of people across space and through time, changes in land use and development, and comprehending how those they are studying conceptualized and organized their own worlds.

Keywords:   historical geographic information system (GIS), maps, georeferencing, St. Croix, Virgin Islands, Island, National Park Service, French colonial
