Good Maps of the Pacific Island Groups

There are at least two excellent maps of the South Pacific Islands. First is Reference Map of Oceania, Cartography by James A. Bier, Published by the University of Hawaii Press.

The other is a small map used for the Class Antro 350 entitled The Pacific Islands, published by the Hawaii Geographic Society. It is particularly strong on geopolitical detail.

Both of these maps are available in the UH Book Store on the UHM Campus.
