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!

IOL - Namorik Atoll

Namorik Atoll (5˚35'N., 168˚07'E.), about 63 miles NW of Ebon Atoll, consists of two wooded islands on the reef enclosing the lagoon. A coral islet stands between them on the reef, with numerous black boulders. The very shallow lagoon is cut off from the sea by the drying coral reef. Boats can cross the reef with difficulty, at HW on the W side of the atoll. There is a trade's store on the W side of Namorik Islet, on the S side of the atoll.

Landing near the W side of Namorik Islet can be effected about 90m S of it. There is no shelter during NE winds, and it is dangerous with strong SW winds when there is a heavy sea. There is a fringing reef which extends about 135m in the vicinity of the landing place. There is depth of about 1.2m and there are rocks in places. Two stranded wrecks lie about 90m off the S shore along the reef line. (SD Pub-153)

Namorik Atoll has a population of 800+. It is small and out of the way. During WW-II there was fighting up at Kwagalen Atoll. According to sources Namorik Atoll required limited resources to retake it from the Japanese.

This map is another project derived from Google Earth imagery. They have many of the islands in the Pacific with 1-meter resolution. It is such a pleasure to work off of that level of resolution. The real power of this map comes when you zoom in to levels between 1:10000 to 1:5000. My digitizing of the shoreline was exceptional. This is a very solid effort.

Enjoy!

Such a great article it was which 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. Thanks a lot for posting this informative article.
