Map not displaying data points

Hello,

 

I am following a LinkedIn tutorial regarding Power BI, and the tutorial uses online sample dashboard "Retail Analysis Sample".

 

The problem I am having is with displaying data points in case when I want to create a new report. After dragging and dropping a map icon and CITY object to the canvas the map is shown but no data is shown. 

(By right-clicking on the map and choosing "Show Data" I can see the data in table form.)

 

Map not showing data points

 

Did anyone face similar issues?

 

Thank you!

Re: Map not showing data points

Hi @cartessius,

 

By my tests, if you change the Data Category of the City column to be Place, it will show successfully.

Map not showing data points

Hello,

 

I am using a sample Power BI application "Retail Analysis Sample" while following a Linkedin tutorial about Power BI.

 

When I drag-and-drop CITY field to a canvas, the map i shown but no data poins are shown.

Data points are shown neither on powerbi.com nor on Power BI desktop.

 

I first though the problem is with regional settings - decimal point vs comma - however, that does not seem to be a case.

 

Anyone has any idea on how to show data points with the sample data?

 

Thank you!

Hi  @cartessius,

I can reproduce this issue in Power BI Desktop and Power BI Service, I will report it internally and post back once I get any updates.
