I get this error when I try to assign a zip code field to the Location property of a Filled Map chart:
Cannot read property 'absolute' of undefined
A rather cryptic error message. Not sure what's triggering that. All the zip code values are valid zip codes. I can use the field in other visualizations without a problem. The Zip Code field only contains 5 digits (no Zip + 4).
It's not a problem with the map when I use a Country or State field.

I suspect there's something odd about the data that prevents something from being plotted. I can't seem to isolate it.
I've filtered on subsets of the zip codes and they are fine, however when combined together, the error appears.
It seems to be a problem when the number of zip codes exceeds a certain amount.
I have 194 zip codes in my data set.
I'm plotting a count for each zip code
When I filter on them and select the Top 90, it fails (it's okay for the Top 89).
89 happens to be the dividing line between counts of 5 and 4.
When I choose the Bottom 176 it fails, but the Bottom 175 works.
175 happens to be the dividing line between counts of 16 and 15; and includes most of the Top zip codes except the top 19
So all the zip codes plot properly, but the change in the count seems to trigger the error.
If the error message weren't so cryptic, I'd be able to find the problem more quickly. Any idea what the error message is referencing? What's the absolute property? Is that a property of the data color? Using the default settings.
I am having the same aforementioned issue with applying ZIP code to the "Location" field. It worked for approximately a day and now it causes the "filled map" to crash on a regular basis. The issue will stabilize if I filter down the input field with slicers.
This is super frustrating, because there ins't a clean alternative as it relates to mapping a zip-code.
