Map question with blank map, no region colored


#1

Hi, I created a new question with a map type. While I see the map, it is entirely gray and no countries colored, even though I have the scale labels with values on. I am wondering what I might be missing to make this work properly. My region field is the name of the countries which I would like to have colored.

These are the countries in my country field (without double quotes):
“Turkey”
“Nigeria”
“Isreal”
“Switzerland”
“Italy”
“Hungary”
“Cameroon”
“Hungery”
“Norway”
“Scotland”
“Netherlands”
“Romania”
“Uganda”
“Gabon”
“UK”
“Ireland”
“Germany”
"Mozambique "
“Angola”
“Finland”
“Libya”
“Portugal”
“Albania”
“Spain”
"Ghana "
“Tunisia”
“England”
“Congo”
“Egypt”
“Chad”
“Belgium”
“Algeria”
“France”
“South Africa”
“Tanzania”
“Kenya”
“Iceland”
“Poland”
“Ivory Coast”
“Denmark”
“Equatorial Guinea”

Do you know why? Thanks in advance!

Hi @fabiolanza
You need to use ISO 3166 Alpha-2 style country codes (meaning 2-letter codes) for the built-in World Map.
Otherwise you have to create a Custom Map, which uses the full naming style.

It worked like a charm. Thanks!
