Map Issue - Desktop vs Web

Hi experts,

one of my customers reported this issue in power bi web geolocation for the country name "Tailandia".

To make an example i created this simple data set which contain those two values in the field Country (Nazione):

In my Power BI Desktop (November 2017) the two values are placed correctly in the same position over Thailand:

However after the app publication the result is different: country name "Tailandia" is placed on Brasil and country name "Thailandia" is placed correctly.

I know there's a brazilian city called "Tailandia" but why in Power BI Desktop the geo value are different?

 

Thank's to all

 

Simone

Why it's different i dont know exactly. Probably goes for the city like you said.
If you wanna do it correctly, change values Tailandia to Thailandia in the Query editor.

@simonefraquelli,

I am unable to reproduce your issue.

I am using the latest version of Power BI Desktop(2.52.4921.581) and change Data category of the Nazione field to Country/place. After I publish the PBIX file to Service, the map visual worls as expected, please review the following screenshots.

In your scenario, please make sure you use the latest version of Power BI Desktop, and have changed the data category of the Nazione field.
