Many mapmakers put in deliberate but unobtrusive and non obvious "mistakes" into the thir maps so that they can know when somebody steals the map data.
This may just go back to somebody doing this in the past, and that data has lived on through further copies.

Read, for example, this wikipedia page on Fictitious Entry.



Yes but placing a entire non-existing island on the map is not exactly unobtrusive or non-obvious to be terribly honest. Signature mistakes are only meant to be recognized by the maker , it is their sole function. It has no need to be seen noticed by others. Why would one draw a entire island for this purpose ?


no,it must be this:
Whoop there it is

Remember Australia is where Pine Gap is located and was also the place where that STS 48 Projectile was fired from that shot at that UFO flying. As soon as the projectile was fired from Pine Gap that UFO is seen Punching at MACH 128 out to space.. This is all picked up by the space shuttle's camera... After this was picked up by the masses all Space shuttle Video broadcasts have a delay BEFORE the public gets to see it.. I have always thought that the Airforce does alot of their test flying for their newest flying machines..

Maybe this land mass has lowered itself under the ocean? Has anyone tried using any techniques to see the land forms under the surface water. If it were any part of any volcanic cone its possible that it collapsed onto itself and dipped below the water.

If it were part of any military installation now off limits they wouldnt even allow ships to sail close by.

Unless its actually the famous Floating Island and is now in a different location.

Not much to add other than its not often our beloved ATS and its membership is quoted by the MSM. Here's the story on this missing island with ATS quote in The Daily Mail (say what you will about the DM but its a legit news source and I believe the most highly trafficked on the Web): www.dailymail.co.uk... age.html

Very strange. I've been trying to find old satellite photos of 19 degrees 13' 18.18" S 159 degrees 56' 13.54" E and have not been able to. In this day and age, you would think that every square inch of the planet must have decades of satellite photos to look back on.

Anybody able to find any?

Now, would it not be great if this phenomenon was to occur for the disputed Senkaku Islands between Japan and China.

This is the first time I have ever seen this website referenced in mainstream media



On www.abovetopsecret.com, discussions were robust with one poster claiming he had confirmed with the French hydrographic office that it was indeed a phantom island and was supposed to have been removed from charts in 1979.
Another claimed: 'Many mapmakers put in deliberate but unobtrusive and non-obvious "mistakes" into their maps so that they can know when somebody steals the map data.'
www.dailymail.co.uk... age.html


All because of this island....

I wonder what the Daily Mail Readership / General public will make of this site. I hope some visit and get enlightened about various things.

But Hello Journalists DAMIEN GAYLE and MARK DUELL from the Daily Mail.

How about you have a good read over this website and help inform the public over the truth about some other subjects that are repeatedly covered up / ignored or subject to disinformation. I'm sure the members here could put together a top ten of most important things that we wish the rest of the public knew!

Nice to know that you people visit here though!

What this does show is that the incredible research by forum members here is being recognised!

I wonder how many times that island has changed hands "sight unseen". Somebody should check with the real estate agents in the area.

Looks like ATS made yahoo news


News of the invisible island sparked debate on social media, with Twitter user Charlie Loyd pointing out that Sandy Island is also on Yahoo Maps as well as Bing Maps "but it disappears up close". On www.abovetopsecret.com, discussions were robust with one poster claiming he had confirmed with the French hydrographic office that it was indeed a phantom island and was supposed to have been removed from charts in 1979. Another claimed: "Many mapmakers put in deliberate but unobtrusive and non-obvious 'mistakes' into their maps so that they can know when somebody steals the map data."

Neither the French government - the invisible island would sit within French territorial waters if it existed - nor the ship's nautical charts, which are based on depth measurements, had the island marked on their maps. Read more: www.smh.com.au...


The French did nuclear testing the the Pacific sit it "would sit inside French territorial waters.

My guess the blew it up!

If they didn't maybe the tsunami that got Japan ate it.

If it was a sand Island then it has just been eroded away and the sand has collected some where else.

If it wasn't a sand island it was probably towed to a secret location somewhere out of range of google

Well it seems that the island existed at some point in time as i have come across pictures of it which i will post.
The area around the map seems strange as does the stitching of the images around the area.
Visible on the island are trees and there is another larger island towards the lower left of it.

Although the island does look like a sand spit which may have simply eroded over time, This does not explain why google have it blacked out nor why it is now being said that the island may have never existed. Surely if there are pictures of it, Something must have existed at some point.

All in all pretty interesting but probably not something to write home about, Amazed by how much attention this has gotten everywhere.





Just thought id make these images and coordinates available.
Hope we can find the conclusion to this enigmatic mystery soon

Why call it Madoff Island and call it Brigadoon?

Perhaps some stranded sailors found paradise and it disappeared, then reappeared a couple hundred years later for the next victims?

Your sandy island is at 23 degrees south, 130 degrees west,
the missing sandy island is at 19 degrees south, 159 degrees east.

But I'd just like to express my shame at being quoted in the Dail Mail. Oh, the ignominity.
How will I ever hold my head up in public again? What will my friends at the golf club say?

Don't worry they probably don't read it. If you don't tell them, why would they say anything?

On Landsat viewer cannot see at all. When opacity sits at 30% you can see a defined outline then nothing.
This is their particular imagery dates
