Wallis Island, showing two main islands surrounded by reef. This map doesn't match more current maps of Wallis, and the map image from which this was obtained is not clear enough to make out the latitude and longitude. Its possible (but unlikely that) this could instead be a map of Futuna and Alofi. (From a chart containing maps of a number of South Pacific islands.)
