Geo Maps using Lat/Long in WEBI 4.2

Hi ,

I'm trying to create a Geo Map using my own latitude and longitude. For this:

1. Have loaded Lat & Long as Characteristics from 3rd party using DB connect to BW.

2. Pulled another characteristics say "X", Keyfigure and Lat, Longi at BEX query

3. At webi report when I right click on "X" and edit as geography by Latitude and Longitude, I don't see the custom Lat & Lon characteristic in drop down.

Could you please guide me on how to approach this solution?

Referred the link https://archive.sap.com/documents/docs/DOC-74364 but no help.

Thanks,

Umashankar

    • Dear AMIT KUMAR

      As you mention in your post, it isn't possible to include new level of geography's category by latitude and longitude. But I am wondering if is possible to merge latitude and longitude / or name area in one group. For instance, I would like to merge Oregon + Nevada as a group of geography custom level over city level.

      Thanks in advance,
