East African Place Names -- Reference
« on: July 03, 2013, 06:41:29 pm »
Reading place names mentioned in the logbooks and locating the places can be challenging. So, we have created topics like this to help.

East Africa is the core of this topic, but to reduce the need for searching multiple topics and to avoid splitting countries we have not defined "East" Africa too strictly. Also, for users working in the Red Sea or the Gulf of Aden, we have included Saudi Arabia and Yemen in this topic.

This topic includes:

  • Africa from the north coast of Egypt (overlapping Mediterranean and Black Sea Place Names) to the west coast of South Africa (overlapping West African Place Names):
    • Djibouti
    • Egypt
    • Eritrea
    • Kenya
    • Mozambique
    • Somalia
    • South Africa
    • Sudan
    • Tanzania
  • The islands/countries off the coast of East Africa that don't belong to one of the countries listed above:
    • Comoros
    • Glorioso Islands
    • Madagascar
    • Mauritius
    • Mayotte
    • Seychelles
  • The western coasts of the Arabian Peninsula (overlapping Arabian Peninsula, Persian Gulf, and Western Indian Ocean Place Names):
    • Saudi Arabia
    • Yemen

In this topic we have:

You can make this topic better by contributing to the East African Place Names -- Discussion!

Transcriber created maps and documents

A Google Map covering a specific ship or area is a good example of a much appreciated contribution. We will collect them here.

Alphabetical list

The following is a list of East African place names found in logbooks. Where possible, the name contains a link to more information.

Note that latitude and longitude are given in decimal degrees.
  • A latitude with no sign (positive) is in the northern hemisphere.
  • A latitude with a negative sign is in the southern hemisphere.
  • A longitude with no sign (positive) is in the eastern hemisphere.
  • A longitude with a negative sign is in the western hemisphere.

We have done our best to locate these places correctly, but there still may be errors. Remember that the same name is sometimes used for many places, so it is possible that the place listed here is not the place you are searching for. Sometimes the name of a place has changed over time or has simply been misspelled by the log keeper. We have included the variants we have seen in the logbooks and have also tried to include the current, standard name. When there are multiple entries for the same place, the information is only included with one.

Useful hints about sorting the list of place names can be found here: How to sort a list by latitude and longitude
