German map of 1911

Many maps of the region are based on topography, with the cartography undertaken in the 1950s and 60s. Today, thanks to satellite images, these maps can be improved upon. However, many of the infrastructures, including the road system and ports, have not changed so much over the last decades.

The German map from 1911 illustrates the age of the Reserve's settlements and their implication in the eventful history of the region.
