Geography of Lost island

Posted to Maps  |  Nathan Yau

GIS guy Jonah Adkins maps the geography of Lost (the tv series). It looks like I missed out on quite a bit. Unfortunately, I only got up to the point in the first season where they saw a dead person hanging in a tree. I could not deal with all the insane cliffhangers.

I’m sure many of you were fans though, so you can stare at the maps for a while to temporarily fill the gaping hole in your life since the show ended.

  • In season 3, episode 1, the tail section crashes to the right of the barracks, not the left, as the camera faces the crash sites. Despite the extensive detail in the show, I dont think a map this accurate is even possible. Its a TV show.
