This thesis depicts in a visual format the settlement geography of early Utah.
Several topics in Utah's historical geography were mapped by conventional cartographic techniques to give an overview of processes and patterns of settlement.
This thesis points to the utility of maps in portraying information concerning settlement activity. It indicates that visual correlations enable the student to better understand settlement through spatial relationships.
Of special interest are the use of color maps, and the creation of physical relief impressions by photographically screening a raised relief map of Utah.
