Shape map: Attack of the giant square!

Hi,

 

I created a topojson file using geojson.io.

 

This is what it should look like; a map of the UK & Ireland split into custom regions:

Map 2.png

 

However, when I add it to PBI, it looks like this:

Here is a link to the json file: https://www.dropbox.com/s/bcvfaiascceqq0s/Regions.json?dl=0

Any help appreciated!

Solved:

 

In case anyone is interested Smiley Wink

 

 

1. Create it using geojson.io

 

2. Copy the </> JSON into Notepad++ and save as .json file

 

3. Upload .json file to mapshaper.org.

 

4. Export as TopoJSON

 

 

I don't know why it didn't work exporting it as a TopoJSON straight from geojson.io, but hey, It works now!

Re: Shape map: problem with custom json file

After some testing, I have discovered that all the shapes are correct except for one - the one that is a giant square.

 

I tried deleting this region to see if it worked without it, but all that happens is another region becomes a giant square.

 

Hope this helps in solving this...
