  • Spratly Islands are a group of disputed islands claimed by Malaysia, Taiwan, China, Philippines, Vietnam, and Brunei. The 1995 and 2010 Philippines samples include data on Spratly Islands (locally known as “Kalayann Group of Islands”) as part of the Palawan province. The islands are regionalized with other municipalities due to confidentiality reasons. Because of their disputed status, they are not included in GIS maps.
