Changed background map[edit]

I changed the background map because the previous one was spurious: it showed rectilinear political boundaries in the Pacific where none exist. I chose instead the EEZs as the most visible indication of where the islands that are too small to show up on this scale are. Territorial waters might be better than EEZs, as an EEZ is not legally territory, but I suspect they would be too small to be easily legible as well as too complex to be easily comprehensible on this scale. — kwami (talk) 23:24, 30 June 2016 (UTC)
