This report is designed to document the production of computerized maps and overlays of all existing archaeological information regarding the City of Boston and to create a corresponding database that will depict site-specific land-use history in Boston. This database and map will facilitate city, state and agency planning, policy, and the identification of research priorities. The report also describes the project's methodology and provides information about initiating the project, information about MapInfo, Access, GIS and introductions about how the maps and database can be used.
