New Mexican Early Explorers’ Maps

Cabeza De Vaca

The best map I was able to find on Cabeza de Vaca’s Route was Wikipedia of all places.

This figure from a research paper also had some other possible routes that cut New Mexico out of the picture.

A third decent possible map.


A decent map of the Coronado expedition. Missing some of the side trips.


A good map of many of the expeditions into New Mexico, including Chamuscado-Rodriguez, Espejo, de Sosa, and others can be found here.


The best map I was able to find of the Oñate expedition was the one located here. See the embedded video about halfway down the page.
