Filled Maps not working at all- please assist

Status: Needs Info

I was working with the Filled Map Visual yesterday, mapping out zip codes in OH, to see one of my branches coverage areas.

I refreshed the data several times, with no issues.

I added a few zips, and refreshed, and the next thing I know, the visual isn't mapping over half the zips in the list.

I figured, just close out and try again.

Well, closing out became re-starting the computer, and eventually giving up.

 

Today, I pulled the zips of a totally different branch, in a different state, and mapped out it's zips. Now, the data won't appear at all.

I went back to my data from yesterday, and it will map out the same as the day before, just a handful of the data, but not all.

I have also tried the Bubble map, and am getting the same thing, which would make me believe that there is something wrong with my data. But how can data work one moment, half work another moment, and then not at all?

 

What are some issues that would cause this?

 

The more I use the filled map visual, the less I like Power BI. Not only do my maps often display with holes in the zips (meaning that the shape of the zip code presented by the filled mpa visual is incorrect). I've raised this issue before, but it is still a problem.

 

For users that deal with coverage areas, and needing to see accurate data, this visual falls drastically short compared to the old MapPoint program. When checking around in the forums and help videos, it seems this visual is overlooked as a valuable one. 

 

Please assist. Thank you.

Is there a place to send my example to? I do not want to post my company data on a public forum.

You can upload the example to online file service like OneDrive and send share link to me through private message. Or you can send mail to me directly (v-haibl@microsoft.com)
