Some of its counted cay's, islands, islets and inhabited reefs front the handful of countries that border the region.

Weather maps provide past, current, and future radar and satellite images for local, Canadian and other North American cities. The Caribbean region can be found on the south-east of the Gulf of Mexico and the North American mainland, east of Central America, and north and south of America.

Occupying major part of Caribbean Plate, the region accommodates over islands, islets, reefs, and cays. These islands form the island arcs that describe the eastern and northern. however, approximately 65% of the data covers land areas in North America, the Caribbean, and Western Europe.

Almost all data were optically processed while approximately 15% were also digitally processed. Digitally processed images are stored at NASA JPL and are available on a limited basis in hard copy format. Many people wonder which continent houses which countries or locales. The seven landmasses of the world that are typically identified as continents are Africa, Antarctica, Asia, Australia, Europe, North America, and South America.

However, there are places in the world that are not physically part of either of these, and in such cases, they are included as part of a region of the world.
