Guam Dive Map Laminated Poster By Franko Maps
On Side One, the entire island is shown in fabulous chartreuse shaded relief so the viewer can see the island topography as it stands out like a beautiful emerald on descending hues of ocean blues, which represent the true depth contours of the surrounding North Pacific Ocean. Every hill and valley and the streams that flow out of the mountains to become Guam’s numerous rivers can be visualized clearly. Guam’s highways and towns are all superbly mapped out for finding your way around this island, which is just over 30 miles in length and varies from about 4 to 9 miles across, depending on where you measure it.
