maps

Hi All

 

I am playing with GlobeMap visual 1.4.2

 

I cannot get it to plot a latitude and longitude. I can plot the same lat/long in the Map visual (see attached).

 

Lat/Longs are both Decimal (6 decimal places) and have a Data Category of Latitude and Longitude.

 

Any ideas on how to get this visual to work.

 

I would have thought you should simply be able to drag and drop the latitude and longitude column - however the Desktop version I am using ( 2.40.4554.421 64-bit (October 2016)) will not "stick" the fields when you drag them in the the appropriate

field position.GlobeMap.JPG

 

Thanks

 

Andrew

Re: maps

@andrewnzinuk The Location and Bar Height fields are required. To test just drag your calculated column Location to both.

Re: maps

So what values do you put in location if you have only lat and long? Zero and Blank() do not work.

 

Are lat and long even used? If so, which is used when there is a conflict between lat/long and location? What if the lat/long is in the middle of the Pacific Ocean? Would the location be "Pacific Ocean"?
