Problem Filled Maps in WEB and Ipad Application

Hello,
first of all congratulations for the wonderful work you are doing.
I have a problem with "filled map" but only with the web application and ipad while the version BI Desktop works well. 

Using the following table

COUNTRYVALUES
ITALY100
ITALY101
ITALY102
ITALY103
ITALY104
ITALY105
ITALY106
GERMANY107
GERMANY108
GERMANY109
GERMANY110
GERMANY111
GERMANY112
GERMANY113

 in Power BI Desktop is ok and "filled map" highlights correctly nations ITALY and GERMANY.

In Power BI WEB and IPAD version returns the error "...the Location data should include Bing Map-supported geographic data, such as country/region, state/province, or postal code..".

What causes this error?

The web version and Ipad not supported the "map filled"?

 

Thanks a lot
Greetings

Hmm, I don't have an iPad to test with but it does appear to work in a web browser. In IE, it zooms automatically while in Edge it does not zoom, but in both cases it does fill in the correct countries. Not sure why it would be different in Safari.  Here is a screen shot of the report configuration in Desktop:

@bibbino did you try to set the field with country name as Country? In desktop, click on the field then Modeling->Data Category->Country...

Was this ever solved?

I'm having the same problem, but while using US States. It works in the desktop app, I get the states filled properly, but when publishing to the web app the maps don't show anything. I've made sure to set the Data Category to "State or Province" as well.

The weird thing in the web app is that the Map visual works, but when switching to the Filled Map nothing shows (same settings used). I'm using state (example "California") as location and just a value as Values.

Is there a bug or am I doing anything wrong?
