This file was created from the world_poli_eez_2014 file and modified by TNC in 3 ways: 1.) All the land cutouts were removed to create whole polygons, 2.) International on land boundaries were added (eg. between DR and Haiti) using lines from The Office of the Geographer’s Large Scale International Boundary Lines and World Vector Shorelines (LSIB-WVS) polygon file, and 3.) the EEZ boundary between Grenada and SVG was manually changed to match local opinion.
The land was extracted using the regional coastline file which incorporates the highest resolution coastline data for each country.
