Problem with map and postal code

Hey,

 

I try to use the map visualization but it seems that it doesn't work well. Some postal codes where shown in the wrong country.

So I try to use Land and Postal Code like

 

Location = Concatenate([land];concatenate(",";[postal code]))

 

 

If I use the coloum "Location" the map visual also doesn't schow all information right on the map.

 

If I use the coloum  "Land" all countries shown correctly.

 

Has anybody an idea why it doesen't show all values correctly?

I've been doing mapping in PowerBI and Excel and all require at least three fields to render correctly. Sometimes, the polygon isn't right or broken but it should work if you have these fields:

 

Country

Zipcode (make sure you format them correctly - I use excel to format each country)

State

County

Address

 

This is a lot of extra work but it gives more info to the cloud service.

This fixed the problem for me 🙂 thanks
