Norway NHS, a new layer in the GeoGarage platform

 Norwegian waters (Exclusive Economic Zone)
EEZs extend 200 kms from shore (unless it clashes with another EEZ).
Norway has the Svalbard Archipelago and Jan Mayen in the Arctic and Bouvet Island in the Arctic.
All their claims on them are due to their remote nature meaning that all it took was a few decades of Norwegian whalers spending time on those islands for much of the world too think: 'they can have those remote islands'.
As this map shows, that ownership does come with its perks.
