    Map shifting

    Arjun Mehra

      Hi

       

      I am using maps in tableau for the first time. I am able to get a default world map but as soon as I place amount in color shelf (i.e. color countries using amount they generate) my map shifts right and CANADA comes to the right of the map and Africa shifts left. Can you please help me retain the image of original world map.

       

      Thanks

      Arjun

          Hi Arjun,

           

          When you put the amount into color the marks turns to Filled Maps from Automatic and slight shift happens.

           

          Before putting amount.

          Solution:

          1. Change the mark to circle after putting the sales to color

          2. Use the area selection tool to fix your canvas area.
