The Olmec site of La Venta in the state of Tabasco, Mexico, is one of the most Important early Mesoamerican cities. This thesis presents the process of creating a prototype Geographic Information System (GIS) of the site's Complex A area. The proposed reconstructive research design using a GIS aims at ensuring that despite the material losses that this site has experienced, the knowledge gained from archaeological excavations spanning the last 60 years will be easily accessible to any and all who wish to learn more or continue work on this site.
