Geolocation map wrong?

Please see map.png attached.

That country in South America is labeled as France when I hover my mouse over it.
The real France in Europe is also labeled as France like it should be.

Why is there a fake France in South America? I think the real country is Suriname, which I believe is a French colony? But then why doesn't other French colonies in for example Africa doesn't say France, and is showing the correct name?

If I go to the country list, it says Suriname, but the map GUI shows France.

    I see Suriname show up in WSM Policy Manager.
    The country which shows up as France (FRA) seems to be French Guiana.

    There are a lot of territories and other possessions that are affiliated with countries you wouldn't think are correct (there are a lot of Dutch owned islands in the Caribbean, for example.)

    If the country is labeled properly, it's likely correct -- if you have any incorrect IPs, I'd suggest opening a support case and we can get them corrected for you should that occur.
