In 1645, more than thirty years after Daniel Dike’s sermon, William Goode preached to the House of Commons and told them “the sooner . . ”36 It was no accident that the influence of all things related to maps and navigation spread throughout English culture just as England was pursuing colonies and expanded international trade in search of empire, and nowhere is the connection between maps and colonial ventures clearer than in a moment described in the records of the Council for New England.

For Europeans, the effort to amass such information became increasingly global in the late sixteenth and early seventeenth centuries. European expeditions to Asia and Africa were part of this exploration and data gathering, and many of the people who promoted colonization in North America also reviewed and promoted works by travelers and expeditions to other regions of the world, all using similar fact-gathering techniques. 54 Lodewijcksz’s account is very similar to the kind of survey Thomas Bavin was to have undertaken and that Thomas Harriot and John White did undertake in the 1580s in Roanoke.

It related directly to ideas and practices of colonization in several ways. Because sea voyages were undertaken as an essential step in expanding trade or in the imperial control of a kingdom or republic, the practice of navigation included certain skills thought necessary for colonial enterprises; principal among them was the art or practice of observation. Colonial sponsors, for instance, sometimes hired artists for exploratory and colonial expeditions and supplied them with detailed instructions that explained what they should observe.
