I got to know that Indonesia is very popular for its islands. Can any one tell me the exact numbers?

    According to a 2002 survey by National Institute of Aeronautics and Space (LAPAN), Indonesia has 18,306 islands. According to the CIA factbook there are 17,508 islands. Counting tidal islands (periodically submerged) could be up to double the island figure (no precise figures); many islands have no name or share names, all of which makes tabulation very confusing even to the government of Indonesia. Exact figures should be considered merely "improved estimates" until a definitive study can be conducted.
