List Description

I believe that this list of all the islands in the world with peaks of over 2000 meters is about 90% complete or more. There could be islands in Antarctica or Indonesia that have been omitted, but probably not too many.

The distance columns show how far it is to the nearest higher peak in the master database, and is a rough measure of how isolated the island is. Mid-ocean islands will have high values, since they are far from higher peaks on continental landmasses.
