Pengelolaan sumberdaya kelautan telah menjadi perhatian dalam kaitannya dengan pembangunan berkelanjutan. Dilain pihak teknologi mengenai pendataan unsur-unsur laut menjadi sangat penting artinya dalam pengelolaan sumber daya wilayah. Guna mendukung pengelolaan wilayah laut dan unsur-unsur geografi laut (pulau) di wilayah kedaulatan Indonesia, diperlukan teknologi GPS yang digunakan untuk menentukan posisi pulau di tengah laut berdasarkan metode toponimi. Survei yang dilakukan berhasil mengindentifikasi posisi ketiga puluh pulau tersebut berikut dengan koordinat lintang dan bujur berdasarkan penentuan GPS.

Kata kunci : Global Positioning System (GPS), pulau, toponimi

 

A marine resources management nowadays has became attention in relation with a sustainable development concept. On the other hand, technology about marine elements is very important for marine resources management and for marine use management.
