      Hi Michelle,

      The map was composed using various data sources some of which we can’t distribute. The NPAAAD shapefile can be downloaded under the Shapefiles section in the Provincial Atlas menu. Other sources you may have to ask from: BFAR for the Marine Protected Areas; DENR for Land Classification and NIPAs areas; and from the PGBh BICTU for Tourism Sites. Other Base Map components can also be downloaded here under the Shapefiles section.
