Please take a look at my sample screenshot. I'm not using the Latitude and Longitude. Just the Location which is states of the USA in my sample.

Thanks Xi Jin,
My Data doesnt have the lat and longitude. I have the customer name and address, how can i show them on the map?
You can select the Map visual in Power BI and drag the customer address field into the location tab, then you can see those addresses being located on the map, like in the below picture.
Will try this and update. Do i need to bring in the complete address or just the zip code and country suffice?
