Date created: 02 May 2019
This date indicates the date the dataset metadata was created on Pacific Data Hub.

The Marshall Islands Territorial Sea Zone was measured from the low water line of the seaward side of the normal baseline (coast), low-water line of the seaward side of the reef fringing the coast and bounding any lagoon waters adjacent to any part of that coast. MarZone delimitation software was used to generate territorial sea limit using the World Geodetic System 1984 (WGS 84) reference datum as stipulated under the Tuvalu Maritime Zones Act 2012.
