Map in Power BI using city name

Hi guys,

 

I created Power Using FILLED map and for location i used the city name.

And it successfull, but for some location it not filled, but when i check i already have that city location in my raw data.
I just want to make sure where we can find the list of city that used in Power BI.

Thank You

Hi @fahmiff ,

Power BI integrates with Bing to provide default map coordinates (a process called geo-coding). When you create a map visualization in Power BI service or Power BI Desktop, the data in the LocationLatitude, and Longitude buckets (that is being used to create that visualization) is sent to Bing.

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—for example, a column for city names and a column for state or province names—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.
