Web Portal
Reports & Research

The Sovereign Limits Web Portal acts as an essential tool in the research and visualization of international boundaries. Key components include:

  • Highly detailed interactive map, capable of showing our boundary data at large scales atop multiple basemap options.
  • Primary sources attached to each international boundary.
  • “State-view:” Filter the map by a country to see their “sovereign footprint” on land and at sea.
  • Our extensive research and maps attached to each boundary.
  • Regular delivery of our “Quarterly Updates & International Boundary News” report (delivered quarterly).

Contact us for access information.

In depth boundary research is a fundamental part of what we do. We make the following reports and documents available through use of the Sovereign Limits Web Portal:

  • Boundary Briefs, providing a concise synopsis of every established international boundary in the World, both land and maritime.
  • Quarterly Updates & International Boundary News, a report delivered quarterly to Web Portal subscribers and data licensees.

All of the above are also available a la carte by contacting us.

The Sovereign Limits World map accurately depicts all international boundaries, both land and maritime, over beautifully crafted custom shaded relief. The poster features:

  • Major land and maritime disputes.
  • Each coastal State’s zones of maritime jurisdiction as set out in UNCLOS-III.
  • Maritime claims beyond 200 M to extended continental shelves.
  • 58 in. width x 35 in. height.

This printed map offering will be updated every year so that users can be assured they are acquiring the most up-to-date boundary information possible. Additionally, larger scale posters of individual maritime regions are also available for purchase. Visit MapSales to order.

International Mapping has converted its extensive collection of maritime boundary maps into an interactive, digital atlas containing more than 245 full-color maps for every established maritime boundary in the world.
