    world map position is not fixed, and North America is splited and positioned at two opposite sides of the map

      The following map is generated from a GIS shape file (.shp) on the locations of human-made reservoirs around the world.

      However, the map for the number of reservoirs by country is shifted, and North America is split into two parts and they are shown on the opposite side of the map, rather than a continuous continent as the map above.

      May I ask why the position of the world map is not fixed, and how to fix it if needed?

       

      Thanks.
