From versions 2.1.0 and GMT 6.4.0 onwards you can also use named regions (contin
ents, seas, etc) using their names.
We offer 37 geographic regions based on [Natural Earth](https://www.naturalearth
data.com) at scale 1:110, 104 seas
named (102 based on [IHO53](https://iho.int/uploads/user/pubs/standards/s-53/S_5
3_JAN16_E.pdf) most of them taken from
[Fourcy and Lorvelec (2013)](https://www6.rennes.inrae.fr/ese_eng/HRMLOS)) and 5
7 lakes, islands and archipelagoes.
You can also use 46 collections of countries; 30 are from [UN49](https://unstats
.un.org/unsd/methodology/m49/)
and the rest were obtained from from [Wikipedia](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/S
ubregion).
These allow you to make maps matching those regions, such as
