That map, and the maps it was derived from (including the original 
source, the CIA) show Cedros Island as being UTC-7 (as if it were in 
Baja Sur, not Baja).

The border between Baja and Baja Sur is on the 28th parallel, which 
lies south of Cedros Island.  Baja is in the Pacific Time zone, 
UTC-8.  Baja Sur is in the Mountain time zone, UTC-7.

I find multiple references confirming that Cedros Island is part of 
Baja, thus UTC-8.  I find no references making any allusion to the 
official or unofficial observed time on the island to be other than UTC-8.

This seems to be a significant error, not I presume the type the CIA 
normally makes... so I am wondering if I've missed something.
