List of underlying UK counties (filled map)

Hi,

 

I would like to ask you, whether is it possible to get the full list of the UK counties that Power BI/BING is using as the underlying data.

 

When I was browsing on the internet I managed to find a list of counties with respective poctcodes (see http://www.postcode-info.co.uk/counties.html). Even though it should be a complete list, there are still some empty spots, when I ploted the counties in the filled map. See below:

Therefore I would like to ask if it is possible to download anywhere a full list of the UK counties that the Power BI/Bing Maps is using as an underlying document. It would be nice to know how the input data should look like to get the full picture without any gaps.

 

Otherwise it is just pure guessing, which makes this amazing tool in fact unusable.

 

Many thanks in advance for your time & I am looking forward to your answers.

 

Kind regards,

 

Tom

You should probably ask this in the Bing Maps Developer Forums:

Hi Tom,

Did you ever recieve a satisfactory answer to your question.  I'm having issues getting a fully filled map, and then issues with overlapping data...

Re: List of underlying UK counties (filled map)

Hey Ben,
I've struggled with this, in our DB we use postcode a lot and I wanted to map them as delivery points, the issue I kept coming up against is that I believe Bing works off Geo coding so lat\long and postcodes can cover multiple lat\long's.
I guess it's the same with counties, sorry I can't be any use but thought I may help to share the experience and hopefully if anyone else posts in the tread I can see it!
Sorry TB
