English: A map depicting the state of European occupation of North America at the start of Queen Anne's War, as the North American theatre of the War of the Spanish Succession is known.

Areas that are solid colour are intended to represent approximate areas of occupation, and do not represent claimed lands, which were generally much larger. Areas with conflicting claims are depicted with colour gradation, and may or may not be occupied by either side.

Many of these land claims also intersect lands claimed by Native Americans, which are not shown.
