How to correct location on map?

Hi,

 

I am working on an Interactive Map comprising of colleges in the state of Georgia, USA. Altamaha Technical College which is in Atlanta, Georgia is getting mapped in Cuba instead of the USA. Any ideas on how I can avoid this?

 

Thanks!

Power BI integrates with Bing to provide default map coordinates. I find that “Altamaha Technical College” does not exist in Bing Map but exist in Google Map in the same place. So you’d better open tickets with Bing Maps.

According to this article, we can give a more detailed address like “25 E Coffee St, Hazlehurst, GA 31539 (Altamaha Technical College)”.

You can try by changing the format numbers, for me the issue was the same but when I changed in only values the map was corrected
