This map isn't part of any series, but we have other maps of the Caribbean that you might want to check out.

I like this map a lot, and I like this visualization. I'd be interested to see any other lighthouse maps that anyone can come across.

So, seafarers: the size of the circle and the distance quoted ("18 miles", etc.) is what? How far away a ship could expect to see the lighthouse under normal conditions?
