The image below shows an enlarged cross section from the centre of the map to

may show on the image below:
The map represents the Caroline islands, and probably other Micronesian
islands, off the eastern coast of the Philippines and the Moluccas. The
distribution of the islands is wildly inaccurate, and the location is much too
close to the Philippines themselves.
