Big Island Maps
When you consider buying real estate on the Big Island of Hawaii, it’ll be wise to study maps of the island, because it has varying landscapes and different temperatures and very diverse terrain. To view, click on one of the maps below.
The Big Island of Hawaii is divided up into these 9 districts.
The map divides into 9 zones, Zone 1 is classified the most hazardous, Zone 9 is considered the least hazardous region.
The Big Island is made up of five volcanoes. Mauna Kea (13,803′) which is the tallest mountain in the world when measured from its base, and Mauna Loa (13,678′) which is the largest mountain in the world. Kilauea is the most active volcanos in the world, and making the island continuously bigger. The two massive mountains cause greener windward and drier leeward.
Temperatures are higher at coastal areas, as the elevation increase the temperature decreases. 45℉ = 7.2℃ 55℉ = 12.7℃ 65℉ = 18.3℃ 75℉ = 23.8℃
Some areas are extremely dry, while some areas get lots of rainfall mostly at night and early morning, making it a paradise for lush landscapes.
The model uses estimates of volcano emissions along with forecast winds to predict the concentrations of sulfur dioxide gas (SO2) and sulfate aerosol particles (SO4) downwind of the ongoing Kilauea eruption.
