My Google Map highlighting over 50 dive sites around Green Island in Taiwan

    Detailed map is here... https://www.google.com/maps/d/edit?mid=zT35Px8KvEXs.kD86xhiPYkZo&usp=sharing

    I've been putting together a map of the dive sites around Green Island. If anyone wants to use it or share it, feel free to do so, it's the primary reason I made it. At the moment, there are a total of 52 sites.

    I've gathered the information from a variety of sources. It's likely that some of it may be inaccurate, which Is why I'm asking anyone familiar with the Island to glance over it and suggest any changes that would be needed. Some examples would be the addition of sites that don't appear on the map or the need to readjust a dive site marker along the shoreline.

    If anyone would like to make contributions, such as dive site descriptions, images or video that were captured at specific dive sites, it would go a long way to making this complete. As I dive more of the sites, I will continue to add information, such as the entry points to the reefs, which you can select from the maps menu.

    Any support would be appreciated.

    This is something I would like to compile for our sites, how did you start? Is there a link to the editor?

    You just need to go to My Google Maps and create a map which would consist of one layer. I believe you are limited to ten layers.

    I am the only person with administrative privileges to the map, so all I would need is any feedback such as descriptions or photos and shore entry points for the dives you would be willing to share. I could then take your information and publish it to the Green Island map.

    Hi Joe,

    Nicely done, I've been working on something similar at Scuba Diving Taiwan | it's still very much WIP. I've collected info on a number of sites, but not yet posted all pages.

    Trying to show general info, rough maps of the sites too (see meiyanshan or longdong as examples). I've got nothing for Ilan/Hualian, maybe can collaborate on some stuff..

    Sweet. I've seen you on Dive Logs

    I have a Dive Logs account too.

    I think you may know some of my dive buddies who don't use Dive Logs. Christopher Thorn and Lief Mikkelborg. I got my advanced certification with Andy Gray and I believe you did too.

    I'll send you a buddy request at Dive Logs and we can coordinate our effort.

    Thanks for the reply. :)

    The link to the map in the original post is no longer public. I changed the host. You can view the map here now... Taiwan Dive Sites
