The two maps below show an island, before and after the construction of some tourist facilities.
Given are two maps depicting an island before and after the building of tourist amenities. Overall the island transforms from having no man-made constructions to an island that is covered with structures, except on the right-hand side of the island.
Starting with the first map, which shows that the island has only one beach on the left-hand side and it is barren except for a few trees scattered around it. The island is about 250 metres long and about 75 metres wide with no man-made features.
The second map illustrates the building of tourist infrastructure on the island. The left of the map shows a path was constructed to allow tourists to go swimming at the beach. This path is connected to a ring of bungalows. To the right of this path, a road was built with a reception building beside it. The road leads to a restaurant above the reception and a jetty below it that allows boats to dock. On the right side of the island, another ring of huts was constructed connected by a path. The far right remains free from man-made construction. [187 words]
