Incorrect Jammu and Kashmir map

0 votes
Hello !

The area of Jammu and Kashmir in India map is showing incomplete in Tableau. I read a few articles regarding this and tried to change the workbook Locale to English (India). After changing the workbook locale, it shows unknown for all locations and cannot find India in the list of countries.

Please let me know if anyone faced similar issue and was able to resolve.

Hey, @Abhimaniu,

Sometimes, unknown locations can be prompted because there's a misspelling or another issue. When this happens, you can correct the unknown or ambiguous locations in your data using the Special Values menu. For that you need to follow a few steps:

  • In the bottom right corner of the view, click the indicator of the special value that lists the number of unknown locations in your map. This opens the Special Values menu.
  • In the Special Values dialog box, select Edit Locations.

OR  you can also select Map Edit Locations

This will let you clarify unrecognized and ambiguous values to locations in Tableau.

You can fix some ambiguous locations by specifying the Country/Region and/or State/Province for each city from a specific field in your data. After specifying the region I guess almost job is done.
