The above map shows some of my completed island mapping projects. Each icon contains the name of the primary island associated with the project and a link to the post. Once all of my projects are posted, the map will be covered with icons. To productively use the map, zoom into a region of interest. Then select an icon.

Each of my maps is constructed of numerous layers of information. All of the layers are vector files. I will make these files available upon request. You are free to use them with certain restrictions - 1) Don't sell them. You can use them on research projects, post them to your website or things of that nature. If you aren't sure about the use of my maps, drop me a line and we can discuss your idea. 2) Give me credit when you use my vectors or images of my maps. Credit them to Peter Minton @ EVS-Islands

If I have the island vector file(s) and based upon your need, I will make them available. Images of my maps are yours to download and use, with the above restrictions applicable. Enjoy!

Small islands, yet they represent a potentially volitale situation between countries. I am sure both Spanish and Moroccan citizens have strong opinions about the ownership of these small plots of land. Mine is not to weigh in on either side, but to make the best map possible. I am including a couple of links (link-1, link-2) that will give you some of the history behind these three small islands.

in my opinion the rocks of velez, alhucemas, perejil and others should not belong to spain as the property comes from the decolonization of the area. Ceuta and Melilla towns is different, they belong to Spain from XVc when the kingdom of Spain was refounded and much before morocco kingdom exists

In my humble opinion, the previous commentary is not accurate. The Peñon of Velez de la Gomera, Peñon de Alhucemas, Perejil Island and Chafarinas Islands belonged to Spain previously to the dual Protectorate (French-Spanish) established on Morocco between 1912 and 1956, so they remained Spanish after the end of the Protectorate. It is important to remark that the frontiers of the Kingdom of Morocco remained in 1956 the same as in 1912. Several territories under Spanish administration were ceded to Morocco after the independence: the Tarfaya zone (1956), Ifni (1968) and Western Sahara (1976), but this cessions do not affected the area surrounding Ceuta, Melilla and the mentioned islands.
