The Island Inventory is an ongoing effort to present data about islands in three categories:

1. Information on a specific island including the nation, state, county, county seat, latitude, longitude, size and location.

2. Next is ownership data for islands with a single owner including the owner’s address from public records.

3. And last are maps and pictures. We are displaying color photographs of the North, East, South and West side of each island along with an aerial photo and topographic map, if available.

There are many definitions of an island. However, for purposes of this inventory, our definition is a named island that is a body of land entirely surrounded by salt water at mean high tide.

As of July 2009 we have completed all the islands on the Pacific Coast of the United State including California, Oregon and Washington. Next, we will begin on the east coast with the State of Maine. There was a beginning to this undertaking, but we don’t see the end.

The sponsor of this inventory is the Farallon Islands Foundation, a California
