Fill Map Visualization (Puerto Rico )

Can some one help me, we have states, region combined in one of the column which has Continental US states and PR. When I select the Field and use it as Location in the Fill Map and change it  (State, Province) except Puerto Rico all states were recognized. Puerto Rico is filled in Brazil , South America.

 

If I add ", US" after all the values and change it to Country, Region Puerto Rico is recognized but not the states. 

 

I like to have this work correctly. Need some ideas or workarounds.

 

Thanks

Nathan

Re: Fill Map Visualization (Pueto Rico )

This is probably not the issue, but hopefully in your data it is "Puerto Rico" and not "Pueto Rico". You will likely have more luck with this question on the Bing Maps forums because Power BI uses Bing Maps for geocoding.

Sorry for the spelling Mistake. It's Puerto Rico and the value we have is PR.

@nsundararajan Seem you have to categorize it as country

Look at the pictures - shows as country not as state

EDIT: Try concatenating State, Country

@nsundararajan Yes concatenation works as expected - but leave it Uncategorized

(this will mess up your legend though because it will be based on country now - don't know if it matters in your case)

Re: Fill Map Visualization (Puerto Rico )

If I do Country Region, then States like FL, TX won't work. My Requirements is we have Regions like FL , TX, GA , PR. 

I want all work together. If I select Country, Region then FL, TX, GA won't work. If I select State, Province PR is not working.

You'll have to address this the PBI team and/or Bing.

Re: Fill Map Visualization (Puerto Rico )

Being from Puerto Rico, I am aware of this problem.  There is also another situation, in which three southern towns ("counties") are not shown in a filled map.  I reported this sometime ago.

Re: Fill Map Visualization (Puerto Rico )

Is there a solution to this? All my data is U.S. data, which includes Puerto Rico (PR) as a state. When I do a filled map, how to I get PR to show up like any other state? Currently PR shows as a state in Brazil as stated in OP.
