Map visualisation not recognising Great Britain

Hi all

 

This is a really odd problem - hoping someone else has come across it before.

 

I've a dataset with countries, including Great Britain, and a map visualisation that shows overall results (bubble size) by country which is working well.  I created a second Power BI model with a map visualisation based on exactly the same dataset, and in this second model all countries except Great Britain appear.  The Bing map shows United Kingdom as "the country" and I guess I could change the data, but as it is picking up Great Britain for one of the models I can't understand why it wouldn't do so for the other.

 

Any ideas/suggestions?  It's driving me mad!

 

Thanks

 

Andrew

Hi, @andrewbt 

 

Based on my test, you may modify 'Great Britain' as 'UK' which can be identified by bing map.

Yes, that would do it.  Strictly UK = Great Britain + Northern Ireland, so not exactly the same thing, but in this case I don't need to distinguish NI so I could use that.  I knew I could transform data and solve it that way, I was wondering if anyone knew why the map visualisation would sometimes recognise Great Britain and sometimes not.  Could be a time when I do need to distinguish Northern Ireland (@PaulDBrown's point on Brexit 😂).

 

Very odd, but thanks for taking the time to provide the alternative!
