GVP uses 19 regions to cover the different
volcanoes. The GVP regions are not nicely
rectangular, which makes using them in
an automatic service a little more difficult
than using the 30 by 30 degree regions
defined above. On each of the subpages
linked to above the name of the
corresponding GVP region(s) is mentioned.

Region 001

region type: north polar view
