Can some one help me, we have states, region combined in one of the column which has Continental US states and PR. When I select the Field and use it as Location in the Fill Map and change it (State, Province) except Puerto Rico all states were recognized. Puerto Rico is filled in Brazil , South America.
If I add ", US" after all the values and change it to Country, Region Puerto Rico is recognized but not the states.
I like to have this work correctly. Need some ideas or workarounds.
I ran into this same issue with trying to get PR and USVI on the same map as the states. My workaround consisted of the following:
I am now able to display highlighted maps for all states, PR, and USVI on the same report.
Is there a solution to this? All my data is U.S. data, which includes Puerto Rico (PR) as a state. When I do a filled map, how to I get PR to show up like any other state? Currently PR shows as a state in Brazil as stated in OP.
What does your data for Puerto Rico look like? Is it:
Is this the ESRI map or the default filled map or something else?
It's in the "State" field as 'PR', just like Texas is 'TX' and Massachusetss is 'MA'. There is no country code or data as it's all U.S. data/states. Example:
Address City State Zip
1 Main St Dallas TX 11111
2 North Ave Boston MA 22222
3 Some Road Guaynabo PR 00969
It's the Filled map, selected from the Power BI visualizations.
Hmm, seems like the ESRI map has similar issues although it just fails to find the location when the column is marked as a State or Province. Bing maps recognizes "Puerto Rico" spelled out but only when the category is set to Country.
Interestingly, if you set it up this way:
And you set the category as "Place", then it works fine in the "Map" visual. Oddly, it also works in the Filled Map visual but does not actually fill in Puerto Rico, but if you hover over it you see your value. ESRI visual chokes on it.
Being from Puerto Rico, I am aware of this problem. There is also another situation, in which three southern towns ("counties") are not shown in a filled map. I reported this sometime ago.
Maps have lots of issues but slowly getting better hopefully... I agree!
This is probably not the issue, but hopefully in your data it is "Puerto Rico" and not "Pueto Rico". You will likely have more luck with this question on the Bing Maps forums because Power BI uses Bing Maps for geocoding.
@nsundararajan Seem you have to categorize it as country
Look at the pictures - shows as country not as state
EDIT: Try concatenating State, Country
@nsundararajan Yes concatenation works as expected - but leave it Uncategorized
(this will mess up your legend though because it will be based on country now - don't know if it matters in your case)
If I do Country Region, then States like FL, TX won't work. My Requirements is we have Regions like FL , TX, GA , PR.
I want all work together. If I select Country, Region then FL, TX, GA won't work. If I select State, Province PR is not working.
