"Missing" Coastal Images: Technically, these images are NOT MISSING. They are a byproduct of the visual methods used to portray coastal waters in the low-resolution background imagery. The water colors progress very gradually from BLUE in the oceans to BLACK at the coastlines.
If an area near the shore which is already black (in a bay, for example) becomes surrounded by high-resolution overlays, the remaining black area appears to be a missing image, and it raises many BBS queries, with some users suspecting censorship.
Notes: ---- Generally, we cannot list missing offshore islands. Too many were lost globally in the March-April 2006 change to the TerraMetrics basic 15-meter background images.
