Geomap does not recognise country

Hi guys

I am trying to use the map visual in my report.

I have got the data by state. Although it recognises most of the states, but it does look for states in the other countries for similar names. I am currently in New zealand...

 

Is there a way for the map to lock down the country?

 

cheers

Hey,

sorry for the delayed answer, but I was too busy to answer.

The only thing I can tell you, same problem in my test. Experiment with the data categories and make a hierarchy.

(refer: Tips and Tricks for Power BI Map visualizations

But for example "rodney" isnt found in Bing Maps in new zealand. 

Maybe you should contact support, it seems to my that this is a bug. Or your DataQuality isnt good enough.

Re: Geomap does not recognise country

Hi,

under --> Modeling --> Properties you can assign your Field a designated meaning. For example Address, City, County or Country.

This help the Map to render your data correctly.

 

Greatings.

Hi

I did that... But it still doesnt recognize that all those regions are just for New Zealand...

Re: Geomap does not recognise country

ok, I'm not having this problem when declaring country, State or Province. If you have several point to hangle for the engine. But I'm living in Germany, maybe the names are strange and unique enough to not make the logic confused 😉

 

Do you have some example data?
