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!

Ahe Atoll occupies a favorable position within the Tuamotus. It would be a potential first landfall for sailors departing from Hawaii heading south. The atoll has a single village with a population of approximately 100 hearty souls. The other 300 plus inhabitants live on the many small motus ringing the atoll's lagoon. Primary sources of income are black pearl farming and tourism, to a lesser degree.

If you followed the above link to Wikipedia, you will notice that the article has not been modified with my island article changes. I have been too busy. Give me a day or so and I'll make the changes to the Ahe Atoll Wikipedia article.

Ahe Atoll - Lagoon Entrance (1018195208_a728c105fb)

Ahe Atoll - Lagoon Entrance

My complements to Ekrem Inoru and his excellent set of photos detailing Ahe Atoll. I have included one photo from Ekrem's Ahe Atoll set showing the entrance to Ahe lagoon. Ekrem states that there is an 8-knot flow at lagoon entrance. This would be a challenge as tides flow in or out of the lagoon. Have a look at the entire set of Ekrem's Ahe Atoll photos found at Flickr. Just follow the link.
