Pacific countries of Fiji and Tonga on a double-sided map from ITMB which presents Fiji divided between the two sides on the map, whilst the islands of Tonga are shown on separate panels at scales according to their size. An overview panel of that section of the Pacific shows the two groups together at 1:4,500,000, clearly indicating coverage on each side of the map.

On one side the two main islands of Fiji, Viti Levu and Vanua Levu, with the nearby islands are presented at 1:380,000. Also shown here are panels with the outlaying islands of Rotuma (1:140,000), Vatulele / Beqa / Kadavu (1:550,000), and Thikombia (1:550,000), plus a street plan of Suva.

The western part of Fiji, the Lau group of islands, is on the reverse, also at 1:550,000, with its southernmost islands (including Vatoa Island where Captain Cook landed in 1774) shown as an inset at a smaller scale of 1:1,200,000. Coverage of Fiji has an index and the maps have latitude and longitude lines at 30’ intervals.
