    Cities not Appearing on Tableau Map

    Drew Friestedt

      I have a list of cities that we have clients in, and I am trying to create a map of where they are located.   However, not all of the cities are showing up on a map when I try to import a file with all of the city names and number of clients into tableau.

       

      I have attached a sample of cities in Illinois, along with a tableau map.  Of the 175 city names, about half of them show up on the maps as records. Flossmoor, for example should be one of the largest concentrations of clients, but does not show up on the map at all.

       

      Why is this the case?  Some of the towns I am having issues with are quite small and might technically be unincorporated or something along those lines, but some of them (like Flossmoor) are not.

       

      Thanks
