Creating a Map Visual with 2 different tables with same headings

Hi,

I like to create a map visual showing the competitive landscape but I have data from 2 different tables with same headings. Is it possible? Sample tables are shown below. Or do I have to combine into a single table before I can create a visual?

 

Table 1

VendorPostal CodeNo of Visitors 
MacDonaldSingapore 011228100
MacDonaldSingapore 022556200

 

Table 2

VendorPostal CodeNo of Visitors 
KFCSingapore 011229120
KFCSingapore 02255880

 

Thanks

@allankwan , merge in power query, rename column before merging

or create common dimension like vendor and post code and join with both tables and use those in visuals

Try to create star schema
