BEx Maps

Dear SDN Experts,

I am working for a client for which its country business content maps are not available. We got shape files and DBF files from a private organization.

I'd loaded the shape, shape index and DBF files into its respective infobjects and the data is showing fine for the regions.

But the mapping of the regions are showing wrong in the maps even though i have maitained the matser data based on the BW Keys in the DBF File., for ex:- it is showing California in the place of New Jersy, but the values for each place is showing fine.

Can anyone please throw some light when can it happen like this or else am i missing any configurations in BI system. And also please let me know what all the fields that should be maintained in DBF file.

And also if possible, i request anyone to share the documentation on the same.

Thanks & Regards

Ravikanth I

    Hi Ravi,

    May, I know your InfoObject name? Are you using 0D_REGION IO? So I can help you further

      Hi Sushant,

      The issue is solved, it is due to master data maintenance. The Place name's (field) master data should be maintained in same order as DBF file.

      Actually the master data of the object was maintained in alphabetical order, so the places are coming in alphabetical order from the top of the map. Now I corrected the order of master data by assiging numerics in the key of master data such that they are in DBF file.
