Hello, The islands are there, two in the top lake and three in the lower lake. They should show up after the next rendering of the map, this might take a little while and they might not appear at all zoom levels at the first rendering. You might consider making the lakes and their components into multipolygons to make them render a lot better. Ask if you need help doing this. Regards Bernard
