Above is a map of anchorages, i.e. areas where ships can anchor in, close to the Verde Island Passage. This passage is the strait or narrow body of water that separates the island of Mindoro from Luzon1. It has been downloaded from the University of California at San Diego Library Digital Collections. There, the map is titled Philippine Islands : anchorages in vicinity of Verde Island Passage. It was published on 13 February 1956 by the United States Hydrographic Office.

The following description of the map is given: “Southwest coast of Luzon, Nasugbu and Hamilo Cove; Maricaban Island, Port Maricaban; Southwest coast of Luzon, Taal and Lemery; Southwest coast of Luzon, Balayan; Southwest coast of Luzon, Batangas; North coast of Mindoro, Calapan.” The map is in the public domain and its digital version has been made available by USC at San Diego “to support research, teaching and private study.”
