Re: Wrong location in the app

Thank you for reporting this.

We are investigating this with the team responsible for the map visual.

As a workaround, you can add the "country" as high level hierarchy, and in the view "expand to next level" to get the states:

Hey @nvarma2

 

Can you please send Power BI Support mail (mpbisup@microsoft.com) with more details (device type, os version and app version) and side by side screen capture of the map in Power BI Desktop and Power BI App?

 

Thanks, Maya
