Mapping with only suburbs. Can't add fields to tables.

I'm trying to using the mapping tool for all of the branches of my company. The table I'm working with only has the fields for the Suburb.

We are based in Australia but three of the dots are going to North America and the United Kingdom.

I can't add fields to the data I am using as it is restricted. A Dataset from an SQL Database.

How can I make the mapping system only look for suburbs within Australia, specifically Western Australia and the Northern Territory?

An interesting idea but unfortunately not what I'm looking for.

 

Shape Map shades the regions, in this case the states of Australia, and we only operate out of two. The majority in WA.

I need the specific pinpoint locations that the simple Map provides.

HI @C_Leam,

What type of region data are you used in map visual? Can you please share some dummy data about these to test?
