Version 1

The maps compare the before and after images of an island construction for tourists. Overall, the western side was heavily constructed while there are minimal changes on the eastern part.

Before, the 250-meter-long island had no man-made building construction. On the west corner there is a beach and going to the eastern side there were a few trees that can be spotted. The eastern part has more land masses than the western part.

After the construction, the beach became a place for tourists to swim, and there is a footpath available for people to walk to their respective nipa-huts. These six available accommodations are built around trees and going further into the middle of the island, the reception office is erected. On the northern side of the office, there is a restaurant and a pier on the south, both of these are connected by a vehicle track. Further east, another nine nipa-hut style housings can be found, however, it is not connected to the main vehicle track, unlike the eastern counterpart. With the exception of some trees, the farther eastern section of the island remained unchanged.


Version 2

The first map shows an island before any construction was made while the second map describes the changes that were made for tourists. Overall, the 250-meter island became commercialized by adding amenities such as accommodations and a restaurant.

The island before had no man-made facilities but after the construction, there is now a pier located in the southern part of the island, where sails can be tethered. There is an available track for vehicles going to the reception office, located in the center of the island, and a restaurant in the northern section.

In between the reception, there are two nipa-hut-style accommodations, six housings in the west connected via footpath around the trees, and the footpath is direct to the beach for tourists to swim. On the eastern side, nine rooms are available but it is not directly connected to the vehicle path. Although the far eastern part of the island has more land mass, it was left unchanged.
