Hi Sudhakar -
I actually watched this video, but was having issues to get the map to load using the longitude and latitude as the x and y coordinates.
I found this tool extremely helpful in the past. Mind you, it does take some work, but creating custom polygons based on you image will pay off in the end.
Read through the article:
Then download the tool:
To use the HTML code, you can Download Notepad++:
Hope this helps.
Hi Nego Jovanovich,
I was owndering why do you need a background image that is exactly the same as the map itself? Do you need to show state borders? Like I did here:
If so I have an easier solution for you. Create a dual axis map. I wrote a short post about dual axis here. Add a second latitude (generated) metric on the map and then remove the 'county' from the Detail Marks Card.
This would probably be easier then adding a background map.
Hope this helps!

Thanks so much for your post. I´ve been trying to find a way to plot my data showing only Brazil on the background, and your twbx file was the solution I was looking for!
Well, almost 100%, because I was not able to do one thing: have the country map show state borders. See, what I'd like to do is this:
I've got to that through the "dumb" path: using Photoshop to join two images, the country map (grey, with state borders) and another one with the blue filled states.
From what I've learned from you, I've got much closer to the "right thing to do", since I was able to do this:
So, my question is: is it possible to take it all the way, also showing borders for the states without any data on it?
