Global/World Map in Shape Map Visuals

Hello everybody, I would like to know if it is planned to include a global map in the Shape Map Visual. I know it's possible to work-around using the Filled Map and Country location, but our Stakeholders dislike the in-map labels and landscape details. I've read the article about the visual and it only refers to a few countries. Any idea if it's planned to include a Global/World map?

Thanks and regards!


Edit: I included this request in the ideas forum. If the Administrator finds it adequate, please remove this post. Thanks!

Love the visual. Is there a way to get United Kingdom as the 4 seperate countries?

Northern Ireland, Wales, Scotland, & England.



Try downloading this TopoJSON file and adding it as a custom shape:

This is so awesome! Does anyone know of a way that I could remove Antartica from the country version? It is taking up quite a bit of space.

Use the version without Antarctica:

This is Perfect!! Thanks so much.

why there is no Hong Kong and Singapore on the World Map?

How could I input those 2 countries into the world countries json file?

Hi @Gm0 , I clicked Raw then Ctrl + S, but still couldn't download the map. Did I miss anything?




Do you know where I can find a topojson file with just the coninents?



Try this one for continents. Does not include Antarctica.

Andorra and Angulia is missing in country maps


Thanks! That's great.
