    Tableau Not Recognizing States for Mapping

    Rob Ingles

      Hello all!


      I am new to Tableau and the community.  I am doing an online course. One of the exercises is to use a sample table to plot data to a map.  The "State" column is showing the correct two letter code for the states however Tableau plots a few random points in Canada and none in the US.  Am I doing something wrong or is there some sort of fix? I have inserted a couple snags showing the State column and the resulting plot points.  Also, should Tableau recognize the entire state name as well as the abbreviation? (ie. Washington vs WA)?


      Thanks for your help!
