Please note the shape of the outline of "The Peninsula" on both the Hondius Map and the Google Earth Image. These outlines are identical. Before residential development occurred in the 1950s, this area was known as Greenbrae Ridge. Sir Francis Drake's, "Plate of Brass" was found along Greenbrae Ridge in 1936. Also, take note of the white circle (a water tank) at the top of the Google Earth Image. The water tank is located on the spot from which a natural spring once flowed. The tank will serve as a future point of reference for "The Treasure Site".

Contours of "The Island" are Highlighted on this Planning Stage Topographic Map of Greenbrae Ridge

Note that the shapes of "The Island" on the Hondius Map and the Highlighted Topographic Map are identical. "The Island" is simply a more detailed (close-up) view of the shape of the land where the treasure was buried along "The Peninsula" (Greenbrae Ridge).
