Incorrect UK locations shown

I think a similar query has been raised before but was not resolved as far as I can tell. 

 

On the attached screengrab there are 3 locations, placed on top of each other, that do not match their true geographical position. Eg South West UK. 

 

On the Data tab, I have tried concatenate() and simply 

 

CountryRegion = 'RU_Estimates of Station Usage_STACKED_TicketType_ALL'[Region] & " UK"

 

plus also attempted to swap these around, so 'UK' precedes the location. 

 

Entering the locations concerned (eg 'south east UK') into Bing Maps places them at their expected locations...can anyone help? Thanks.

Hi @yamax87 ,

 

this is not an easy subject, you have to find the right structure for the Bing Service call. I've also noticed that Power BI calls a different Bing Service endpoint, depending on the language setting, which returns a different result.

 

Maybe these two links can help you.
