List Description

Note that Africa, as defined here, includes a great many offshore islands in the Indian and Atlantic Ocean, many with high-isolation peaks.

Acknowledgments:

Thanks to Andrew Kirmse, who created and ran software for calculating isolation from digital elevation models, and to Jonathan de Ferranti, who helped with high-quality DEM data. Many of the isolation values for peaks on this list were determined by their process and then map checked.
