Huh! That theory is fascinating. Let me see...
Oooo. I have found now, that the alt- contractor trailer is indeed a Mystery Model. Here is the original texture containing the image:

Assorted renditions of mapping Isla Nublar from the novel may be found here (as I understand, none are from Crichton himself):

Hmmmm. That Eastern peninsula seems to be whereabouts the East Dock would go. Possibly the Sauropod Swamp is shown with a lake area. The Northern region does
seem a bit mountainous. Notably, the island is no longer tear-drop shaped...
And finally, I'd like to note that the location of the mountains in this old novel-Nublar map, are where Mt Sibo does end up being in (JPTG? and) Jurassic World. This seems fitting.
Possibly Isolt can perform a texture upscaling
on the original unpaletted texture shown above, to present an even clearer image of this vaguely developed Trespasser Nublar canon.
