Spirit of Aloha, Aloha Airlines in-flight magazine, has a cover story on the mapping of the Hawaiian Islands in its January / February issue, available online. Included are a number of small images of various historical maps, generally from the late 1700s on. This history seems to begin with Captain James Cook. “Not only was [Cook] the first European to chart the Hawaiian Islands, between 1778 and 1779, he was also the first to outline the extent of the southern ice mass, the coastline of Australia and New Caledonia, and chart many features on the northwestern coast of North America and various parts of the North Pacific.” An interesting article, though not as interesting as its companion article mentioned earlier in this blog.
