Filled Map: Colour coding countries based on values

Hi all,


I'm trying to create a regulation heatmap of Asia using the filled map visual. The idea is to create a heatmap based on regulation for different topics in different levels of details, such as this: 




What I want to do is as follows: 

I want to create a filled map that shows the regulatory heatmap. So for instance, I have a slicer on level withholding tax and i would like it to show the colours in a certain order if they are contained. So if in withholding tax any of the activities is coded as yellow or red, i would want the map to display this.


Currently, it shows it as green like so:




So i guess i want to be able to rank the colours.


Thank you very much, any help is greatly appreciated 🙂

Hi @Seniah ,

Could you pls provided sample data and expected output, remember to remove confidential data.



Best Regards


Hi, thanks for your response!

Sample data looks like this: (I've created a sample data set for this)



Hong KongCash ManagementDomestic PoolingGreenGreen becauese no restrictions
Hong KongCash ManagementCross Border PoolingYellowYellow because some restrictions
Hong KongBank Account ManagementResident EntitiesYellowYellow because some restrictions
Hong KongBank Account ManagementNon-Resident EntitiesRedRed because impossible


My goal would be to have a page on which I could have a slicer on level "Category", with "Heatmap" as legend to fill the countries with the respective countries. Additionally I have made a drill-through for explanation of colour.


So in the above case expected outcome would be:
If i set the slicer to Cash management, HK would be yellow on the map, because yellow is "more important" than green, and the same for Bank account management: HK would be red because red is more important.


I hope this makes sense t oyou and I was ble to correctly explain myself 🙂 

Thanks for any help 🙂
