FILLED MAP IS NOT RECOGNIZING NAME OF "TURKEY"

Created a filled map with values per country, all values are recognised except for "TURKEY". Works if you change to "REPUBLIC OF TURKEY" or "TURQUIA" (spanish) but for reports where screen real estate is important it would be beneficial to be able to include the shorter name.

 

Thank you

Hi,

As far as I’m concerned, this is a limitation which is mentioned in the official document:

Map data can be ambiguous. For example, there's a Paris, France, but there's also a Paris, Texas. Your geographic data is probably stored in separate columns – a column for city names, a column for state or province names, etc. – so Bing may not be able to tell which Paris is which. If your dataset already contains latitude and longitude data, Power BI has special fields to help make the map data unambiguous. Just drag the field that contains your latitude data into the Visualizations > Latitude area. And do the same for your longitude data.
