The National Centre of Biography has produced a number of graphs, maps and charts as part of its First Fleets project all of which are listed below.
Please note the results depicted in the graphs and charts may change as more data is gathered by the project.
Place of birth graph
Shows the place of birth of fleeters and their family. Click on the drop down box next to generation to limit your search to generation 0 (fleeters), 1 (their children), or 2 (grandchildren).
Place of death graph
Shows the place of death of fleeters and their family. Click on the drop down box next to generation to limit your search to generation 0 (fleeters), 1 (their children), or 2 (grandchildren).
Family relationships graph

You can limit the view to generation 0, 1 or 2 by clicking on that option on the top right hand side of the graph. Right hand clicking on the graph with your mouse brings up that same option.
Includes charts for average number of children by generation, average age difference of children by generation, approximate age at marriage, approximate age upon arrival, average age at death, number of partners by generation, number of partners by religion, immigration status, partnerships by spouse type, approximate age of women when they gave birth, occupations, religion and cause of death.
William Bradley, Map of Sydney Cove, March 1788
The map is an online creation of William Bradley's Map of Sydney Cove, March 1788. It was the first map to depict the British settlement established in New South Wales. If you click on a ship's name in the sidebar it will take you to that ship in the map. From there you can click on a list of people who we have so far recorded as being aboard that ship. You can then select an individual record to look at. You can do the same with other names in the list. Clicking on commissary goes to his house on the map. From there you can go to his ADB entry.
Charles Grimes, Plan of the Settlements in NSW, 1796
Works the same way as the Bradley map.
Settlers' Blocks on Norfolk Island, 1796
The three different colours of the map show the different types of settlers - ex-convicts, seamen and marines and officers.

J. Burr and G. Ballisatt, Plan of Allotments of Ground Allocated from the Crown in NSW, 1814
Click on the 'Show 1796 map' in the side bar to see how much the settlement has grown between Grimes's 1796 map and 1814.
