How did the location of New Spain affect the way the Spanish settled on the land?
The Spanish settled in many areas of the New World. They settled in Central, South, and North America. In North America, they settled everywhere from California to across …the Mississippi River and Florida.

Spain settled in North, Central, South America, the Caribbean Ocean, and the Pacific Ocean.
The first wave of Spanish contact with the New World was through the first explorations. Settlements were established mostly for economic reasons. 1) for trade with what were …falsely believed to the peripheral subjects of the Great Khanate but actually turned out to be small island tribal nations; 2) for natural resources, which included lumber, precious metals, fishing, skins, and slaves, 3) plantations, using indigenous, and later African slave labour, to grow sugar, fruit, tobacco, and cotton and 4) christian missions to convert the indigenous peoples to Christianity. Of ten these last three would combine at different points depending on political geography and the particular period of settlement. Apart from the Christian missions and some early voyages, most of the conquistadors were self-financed by American gold and silver or at least temporarily expropriated royal resources for the purposes of conquest, like Cortes in Mexico.

It necessitated Spain's governmental adaptation in order to govern such a vast area. Spain set up viceroyalties, which were territories under the rule of a viceroyal, who governed under the direction of the Spanish Crown. The New World also brought great wealth to Spain, through slaves, which they both sold and used as labor, agriculture, which flourished in S. America's climate, and mining, which was the main industry. It also helped promote Spanish capitalism by funding the actions of newly-rich entrepeneurs. Finally, the cruel treatment of the natives led to social divisions in Spain.
